    Toronto, Canada -- Longisil, a form of penicillin used to treat various infections in large and small animals, has been recalled by Canadian health officials.
    The drug is administered by injection in animals like cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, cats and dogs, and is available only by prescription from a veterinarian, says Health Canada.Longisil is distributed in Canada by Vetoquinol N.-A. Inc.

    Only one lot, Lot #9224, is affected by the recall, with three different vial sizes -- 100 ml, 250 ml and 500 ml -- included. The recall was initiated after Vetoquinol received an "abnormally high number of reports of allergic reactions in animals following use of product from this lot," Health Canada reports. The reports included 14 dogs and maybe one cat that developed swelling and hives within minutes or hours of injection but later made full recoveries.

    Adverse effects should be reported to Health Canada at 877-838-7322.
