Shotapen inj. 100 ml virbac


Treatment of bacterial infections caused by susceptible to penicillin and
dihydrostreptomycin in cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, dogs and cats microorganisms.

Composition: Per 100 ml:
Benzathine benzyl­penicillin – 10 g,
Procaine benzylpenicillin – 10 g,
Dihydrostreptomycin sulfate – 16,4 g.
Pharmacological characteristics: The synergistic bactericidal action of the penicillin-dihydrostrepto­mycin association covers a very wide spectrum of micro­orga­nisms. Penicillin attacks bacterial cell walls and thus enhances the penetration 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 procaine form gives an extended action up to 5 days (3 days in practice). Dihydrostreptomycin is mainly active against G(-) bacteria and thus completes the spectrum of penicillin G.
