bantimine use for a lactating sow.

I have a sow that farrowed 3 days ago,she is not eating  and has a discharge.I am treating with oxy 200 as per the vet but I have had good luck with the penicillian in the past. I  would like to give her a shot of bantimine but have never used it on a lactating sow.Would it do any harm or good? Thank you John Crispino

    The first and easiest way to know what the problem is with a sow is checking her temperature. If she runs a fever post farrow bannemine or flunix will definitely get her eating.
