Betamox LA is suitable for the control of infections, due to susceptible micro-organisms, in cattle, sheep, pigs, dogs and cats where a single injection giving prolonged activity is required. It may also protect from secondary bacterial invasion in cases where bacteria are not the initial cause of the disease.


Betamox LA Injection is an off white sterile suspension.

Amoxicillin is a broad spectrum semi-synthetic penicillin bactericidal in action for use in cattle, pigs, sheep, dogs and cats. In vitro it is effective against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria which include: Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus species, Salmonella species, Staphylococci and Streptococci.

Betamox LA is suitable for the control of infections, due to susceptible micro-organisms, in cattle, sheep, pigs, dogs and cats where a single injection giving prolonged activity is required. It may also protect from secondary bacterial invasion in cases where bacteria are not the initial cause of the disease.
Indications include infections of:
(a) alimentary tract.
(b) respiratory tract.
(c) skin and soft tissue.
(d) urogenital tract.
(e) in prevention of post-operative infection (treat before surgery).

Dosage & Administration:

Cattle, Sheep and Pigs : By intramuscular injection only.
Dogs and Cats : By subcutaneous or intramuscular injection.

The recommended dosage rate is 15 mg per kg bodyweight, repeatable if necessary after 48 hours. Massage the injection site. A separate injection site should be used for each administration.
ANIMAL WEIGHT (kg) DOSAGE VOLUME (ml)
Cattle 450 kg 45.0 ml
Sheep 65 kg 6.5 ml
Pig 150 kg 15.0 ml
Dog 20 kg 2.0 ml
Cat 5 kg 0.5 ml

(Dose volume is equivalent to 1 ml per 10 kg bodyweight).

If dose volume exceeds 20 ml, it should be divided and injected into two sites.

As with other injectable preparations, normal aseptic precautions should be observed. (Use dry syringe for extraction of suspension to avoid hydrolysis of Amoxicillin).

An appropriate graduated syringe must be used to allow accurate administration of the required dose volume. This is particularly important when injecting small volumes.

Contra-indications & Warnings:

Suspension is not suitable for intravenous or intrathecal administration.
Milk for human consumption must not be taken from a cow during treatment. With cows milked twice daily, milk for human consumption may only be taken from 79 hours (i.e. at the 7th milking) after the last treatment. With other dosing routines, the basis of the veterinary surgeons advice should be that milk may be taken for human consumption only after the same time period from the last treatment (i.e. with three times a day milking, milk for human consumption may only be taken at the 10th milking).
Not for use in sheep producing milk for human consumption.
Animals must not be slaughtered for human consumption during treatment. Cattle may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 23 days from the last treatment.
Sheep and pigs may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 16 days from the last treatment.
Occasional local reaction may occur with use of Betamox LA.
Not effective against beta-lactamase producing organisms.
Amoxicillin, like other penicillins, should not be administered orally or parenterally in rabbits, hamsters, gerbils and guinea pigs.
Penicillins and cephalosporins may cause hypersensitivity (allergy) following injection, inhalation, ingestion or skin contact.
Hypersensitivity to penicillins may lead to cross reactions to cephalosporins and vice versa. Allergic reactions to these substances may occasionally be serious.
