Product Description

Treatment of infections in horses caused by bacteria sensitive to the combination of trimethoprim and sulfadiazine, particularly:

  • Respiratory tract infections associated with Streptococcus spp. and Staphylococcus aureus;
  • Gastrointestinal infections associated with E. coli;
  • Urogenital infections associated with beta-hemolytic streptococci;
  • Wound infections and open or drained abscesses associated with Streptococcus spp. and Staphylococcus aureus.

Dosage & Administration

Administration route: Oral use.

Posology: 5 mg trimethoprim and 25 mg sulfadiazine per kg body weight per day to a maximum of 5 days.

One syringe is intended for 600 kg bodyweight and each syringe is subdivided into 12 markings. 

The equivalent of one marking is sufficient to treat 50 kg of bodyweight and the minimum body weight for treatment is 50 kg.

Directions for use

  • To ensure a correct dosage body weight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid underdosing
  • The calculated dose is provided by adjusting the ring on the plunger according to the body weight of the horse.
  • The paste is administered orally by inserting the nozzle of the syringe through the interdental space and depositing the required amount of paste on the back of the tongue.
  • The animal's mouth should be free of any food.
  • Immediately after administration, elevate the head of the horse for a few seconds to ensure the dose is swallowed.


Meat and offal: 14 days
