Composition:

Each ml suspension contains:

250 mg dihydrostreptomycin sulphate

200,000 I.U. procaine penicillin G.

                                              

Spectrum of activity:

Procaine penicillin G is a small spectrum penicillin with bactericidal action against mainly Gram-positive bacteria, (like Streptococci, Staphylococci, some Corynebacteria spp., Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae, Clostridia spp., Bacillus anthracis) and Gram-negative cocci, Leptospira canicola, Campylobacter fetus and Actinomyces bovis.

Dihydrostreptomycin, an amino glycoside antibiotic, has bactericidal activity against mainly Gram-negative bacteria, like E. coli, Proteus vulgaris, Brucella spp., Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Klebsiella spp., Pasteurella spp. and some Mycoplasmas.

The combination acts additive and in some cases synergistic.
