Broad spectrum antibiotic and long lasting effect
Active substance: Amoxicillin trihydrate 100 mg
Excipients (benzoic acid and paraffin oil) ad 1 ml
Amoxicillin is an amino penicillin of low toxicity and has an antimicrobial spectrum similar to ampicillin. It has a strong bactericidal action on Gram-negative (Actinobacillus, Bordetella, Escherichia, Haemophilus, Pasteurella, Salmonella and so on) and Gram-positive (B. anthracis, Clostridium, Actinomyces, Erysipelothrix) bacteria. Due to the similar structure with D-alanyl-D-alamine it competes with the latter and couples with murein-transpeptidase, enzyme required for the synthesis of N-acetyl muramic acid, which forms the supporting skeleton of the microbial membrane. As a consequence, amoxicillin blocks the synthesis of mucopeptides from the microbial wall.
Absorption of the product is rapid and complete after administration, distributing well in tissues and fluids and reaching peak concentrations in lungs, liver, kidney and urine.
Cattle, sheep, goats, horses and swine
Injectable amoxicillin has long lasting effect and is recommended in generalized infections and in infections with digestive, respiratory, urogenital, mammary, articular or skin localization in all the target species. It can be also used in the prevention of post-surgical infections.
Do not administer the product intravenously.
Sometimes, at the inoculation site, allergic reactions may occur; massage of the local area and cold compresses improve on these reactions.
METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION
The product is injected intramuscularly or subcutaneously using a dose of 10-15 mg active substance per kg of body weight and day, depending on the size of the animals, as follows:
- adult animals: 1 ml/10 kg of body weight 3 – 5 days;
- young animals: 1.5 ml/10 kg of body weight for 3-5 days.
The product is administered at 24-48 hours interval and the doses may be increased 2 to 3 times in case of severe meningeal, mammary and post-surgical infections.
Use cautiously in horses
Shake well the bottle before subcutaneous or intramuscular injection. Use well dried syringes because in contact with water, the oily suspension can plug the needles. Use sufficiently thick needles to facilitate the injection of the suspension.
When the volume of suspension is greater than 20 ml, inject the product in separate sites.
Meat and offals: 28 days;
Milk: 7 days.
Bottles of 20, 50 and 100 ml.
