PG 600

by: Dr. G.F. Kennedy

Recently there has been a change in PG 600. The product now requires refrigeration for storage and has extended the expiration date to three years. My quick read on this situation is that the product hasn’t changed but by requiring refrigeration they were able to extend product life an additional year. They no longer make singles and I am often asked what do I do when I have part of a multiple dose left. The answer is simple, freeze it and thaw it when you need it next time. We will ship Pg 600 without refrigeration. However, it is important to refrigerate on arrival.

About Ask-a-Vet Sheep

Veterinary services, procedures, biologicals, and drugs mentioned in this publication represent the personal opinions and clinical observations of the contributing author. They are in no way intended to be interpreted as recommendations without the consent of the producer’s own practicing Veterinarian. We strongly urge that producers establish a patient-client-veterinarian relationship that allows extra-label use when there are no drugs approved for treatment or if approved drugs are not effective. This procedure allows veterinarians to go beyond label directions when “prudent use” is necessary. The limited availability of drugs and biologics in this country is a major factor in restricting the growth of the sheep industry and allowing producers to compete in the world market place.
