Each ml solution contains:
200 mg oxytetracycline
Broad spectrum antibiotic with bacteriostatic action against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (E. coli, Pasteurella, Salmonella, Brucella, hemolytic and non-hemolytic Streptococci, Clostridia, Haemophilus, Corynebacterium, Anthrax, Staphylococcus, etc). Also active against Rickettsiae, Mycoplasma, Spirochaetes, Actinomyces.
The bacteriostatic effect is based on the inhibition of glutamic acid metabolism in the cells thus inhibiting the synthesis of bacterial proteins.
Oxytetracycline 20% LA maintains therapeutic levels for prolonged periods (about 3 days) following a single parenteral dose. The highest blood level is obtained after 4-8 h; the product is therefore indicated in acute infections where a broad spectrum antibiotic is needed.
Treatment of infectious diseases caused by germs sensitive to oxytetracycline like enteritis, salmonellosis, (vibrio)dysentery, mastitis, (endo)metritis, foot rot, pneumonia, infections of the urinary and digestive tract, secondary infections in case of viral diseases, etc.
Liver and kidney insufficiencies. Do not administer high doses to horses, dogs, cats.
