Many authors have reported that metaphylactic treatment with drugs such as ceftiofur, florfenicol, tilmicosin
, tulathromycinand, and oxytetracycline (OTC) is a useful tool to reduce the number of BRD-affected animals within a population (4,7,20).

The antimicrobials licensed for use in rabbits in Spain are enrofloxacin, colistin, apramycin, tiamulin, tilmicosin

Attempted elimination of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (serovar 2 and 6), Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and PRRS-Ev by depopulation and tilmicosin
A comparison of the clinical field efficacy and safety of florfenicol and tilmicosin
for the treatment of undifferentiated bovine respiratory disease of cattle in western Canada.
We found that Escherichia coli isolates were resistant against tilmicosin

Two farmers in America have died from accidentally self-injecting the veterinary drug Tilmicosin
while treating their cows.
Unfortunately, some of the other antibiotics tested in this study - such as tilmicosin
and tulathromycin - did show some resistance to the key bacterial pneumonia bugs, so make sure you discuss your treatment protocol with your vet to make sure he or she is confident it will continue to work effectively on your unit should disease break out.
