Penicillin G is a substance of low toxicity. However, side effects, or so-called allergic or anaphylactic reactions - sometimes fatal, have been known to occur in animals hypersensitive to penicillin and procaine. Such reactions can occur unpredictably with varying intensity. Animals administered penicillin G should be kept under close observation for at least one-half hour. Should allergic or anaphylactic reactions occur, discontinue use of the product and immediately administer epinephrine following manufacturer’s recommendations and call a veterinarian.
As with all antibiotic preparations, use of this drug may result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms, including fungi. A lack of response by the treated animal, or the development of new signs or symptoms suggests that an overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms has occurred. In such instances, consult your veterinarian.
Since bactericidal drugs may interfere with the bacteriostatic action of tetracyclines, it is advisable to avoid giving penicillin in conjunction with tetracyclines.
Beef cattle should be withheld from slaughter for food use for 30 days following the last treatment. Treatment in beef cattle must be limited to two (2) doses, by subcutaneous injection only. Do not inject intramuscularly.
