EXCENEL® RTU EZ (ceftiofur hydrochloride) Sterile Suspension provides the same effective treatment you’ve come to trust with EXCENEL RTU but is now easier to get out of the bottle, into a syringe and into your animals — with the same four day meat withdrawal for swine, still with one of the shortest withdrawal times of treatments on the market today.

Do not inject more than 5 mL per injection site in swine.
