The active ingredient in Fish Cillin, ampicillin, works by preventing bacteria from properly forming cell walls. Without a cell wall, unwanted substances are allowed to enter the cells and the cell contents are able to leak out. This action kills the bacteria responsible for infection.

Warnings:

Keep this product out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

Fish Cillin is intended for use in aquarium and ornamental fish only. It may also be given to dogs and cats with veterinarian approval. Not for use in horses or human.

CAUTION: This medication may cause severe diarrhea when given orally at high doses.

Do not give Fish Cillin to animals allergic to penicillin.
