Treatment of bacterial infections caused by susceptible topenicillin and
dihydrostreptomycin in cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, dogs and catsmicroorganisms.
Composition: Per 100 ml:
Benzathine benzylpenicillin – 10 g,
Procaine benzylpenicillin – 10 g,
Dihydrostreptomycin sulfate – 16,4 g.
The synergistic bactericidal action of thepenicillin-dihydrostreptomycin association covers a very wide spectrum ofmicroorganisms. Penicillin attacks bacterial cell walls and thus enhances thepenetration of dihydrostreptomycin which interferes w/ the protein synthesis.
Penicillin G is active against many G(+) bacteria. Its distribution is wide.
The benzathine form of penicillin G is active for 18-24 hrs and the procaineform gives an extended action up to 5 days (3 days in practice).Dihydrostreptomycin is mainly active against G(-) bacteria and thus completesthe spectrum of penicillin G.
