1 ml of the preparation contains active substance:
Ceftiofur (as ceftiofur hydrochloride) – 50 mg.
Ceftiofur is an antibiotic of the cephalosporin series of the third generation. It has a wide spectrum of action, and is active against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including strains producing β-lactamase, and some anaerobes, including: Escherichia coli,Pasteurella (Mannheimia) haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida, Haemophilius somnus, Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, Haemophilius parasuis, Salmonella cholerasuis, Streptococcus suis, Streptococcus zooepidemicus, Streptococcus equi, Pasteurella spp., Staphylococcus spp., Actynomyces pyogenes, Salmonella typhimurium, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus dysgalactiae, Streptococcus bovis, Klebsiela spp., Citrobacter spp., Enterobacter spp., Bacillus spp., Proteus spp., Fusobacterium necrophorum and Porphyromonas asaccharolytica (Bacteroides melaninogenicus). The mechanism of bactericidal action of ceftiofur is to inhibit the functional activity of bacterial enzymes of transpeptidases and carboxypeptidase, which take part in the binding of the main component of the cell wall of pathogens – peptidoglycan, which leads to a disturbance of the osmotic balance and destruction of the bacterial cell.
Ceftiofur after parenteral administration is metabolized to form desfuroylceftiofur, which has the equivalent to ceftiofur activity against bacteria. This metabolite is inversely binds with plasma proteins and accumulates in the inflammatory focus. Ceftiofur and its metabolites are excreted from the animal organism mainly with urine and less with bile.
Cattle, poultry, pigs, sheep, goats, dogs, cats.
Treatment of cattle, sheep and goats with acute postpartum metritis, mastitis, necrobacteriosis (panaritium, hoof decay), as well as with respiratory diseases caused by microorganisms susceptible to ceftiofur.
Treatment of pigs with acute metritis, and respiratory diseases caused by microorganisms susceptible to ceftiofur.
Treatment of dogs and cats with diseases of the digestive tract (enteritis, gastroenteritis, gastroenterocolitis), respiratory diseases (bronchitis, bronchopneumonia, rhinitis) and the genitourinary system (metritis, endometritis, mastitis, agalactia, cystitis, urethritis, pyelonephritis), joints, skin and soft tissues; with acute and chronic otitis, surgical, wound, postpartum and other primary and secondary infections of bacterial etiology caused by microorganisms susceptible to ceftiofur.
