How it works

Lincocin is absorbed in the digestive system and distributed to the body’s tissues, effectively fighting against infections in multiple organs. Lincocin Aquadrops is used to treat bacterial infections, especially staphylococcus (Staph) and streptococcus (Strep). Dosage is usually given two to three times a day for a number of days and if doses are missed or the entire treatment regimen is not completed, the infection could worsen or return. Consult your veterinarian if the animal's condition does not improve or worsens after beginning treatment.
