Bactericidal in action with broad spectrum activity. The combination attacks bacterial protein synthesis at two points. It works by sequential blockade, which enhances the individual anti-bacterial effects, so the combination becomes bactericidal. TRISOPRIM is highly active against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria including many strains which are resistant to commonly used antibiotics. Most B-lactamase producing bacteria are sensitive to TRISOPRIM. Importantly, the synergism of these two components allows lower doses to be used, which reduces the possibility of side affects while still providing optimum cover. Its synergistic effects against a large range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria includes E-coli, Salmonella and Staphylococci.
TRISOPRIM is rapidly absorbed and quickly distributed producing high concentrations throughout the animal’s body. Its high tissue levels are effective in bacterial infections of the respiratory, alimentary, the urinary and genital tracts, the eyes and ears.
For the systemic treatment of bacterial infections caused by organisms sensitive to trimethoprim and sulphadiazine in cattle, horses, sheep and pigs.
