Each ml suspension contains: 150 mg amoxycillin base (as trihydrate)
Spectrum of activity:
Amoxycillin is a broad spectrum, semi-synthetic penicillin with activity
against both Grampositive and Gramnegative bacteria. Sensitive are
streptococci, E. coli, Pasteurella spp., Proteus spp., Salmonella spp.,
Corynebacterium spp., staphylococci (β-lactamase negative),
The drug is destroyed by e.g. penicillinase-producing staphylocci.
Some Gramnegative strains are resistant against amoxycillin (R-plasmid). After intramuscular injection amoxycillin is quickly resorbed without irritation at the injection site.
Infections of the alimentary tract, respiratory tract, urogenital tract, coli-mastitis and secondary bacterial infections
during the course of viral diseases, in horses, cattle, pigs, sheep, dogs and cats.
New-borns, small herbivores (such as guinea pigs, rabbits), hypersensitivity to penicillins, renal dysfunctions,
infections caused by penicillinase-producing bacteria.
Amoxycillin is incompatible with fast-acting bacteriostatic antimicrobial drugs (e.g. tetracyclines, chloramphenicol,
Hypersensitivity reactions may occur, e.g. anaphylactic shock.
Dosage and administration:
The general dose is 15 mg/kg bodyweight i.m. (this is achieved by injection of 1 ml per 10 kg b.w.), daily during 3
In severe cases this dose may be given twice daily, (as there are no problems of toxicity).
Shake well before use.
For meat: 7 days.
For milk: 3 days.
Store between 8 ℃ and 15 ℃ and protected from light.
100 ml multidose vial.

Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) is a lack of vitamin A in humans. It is common in poorer countries but rarely seen in more developed countries. Nyctalopia (night blindness) is one of the first signs of VAD. Xerophthalmia, keratomalacia, and complete blindness can also occur since Vitamin A has a major role in phototransduction.
Approximately 250,000 to 500,000 malnourished children in the developing world go blind each year from a deficiency of vitamin A, approximately half of whom die within a year of becoming blind. The United Nations Special Session on Children in 2002 set a goal of the elimination of VAD by 2010.
