Description of Trimidox
Trimidox contains trimethoprim, a synthetic antibacterial and sulfadoxine, a sulphonamide. The two components of TRIMIDOX produce a sequential double blockade of bacterial metabolism, giving a level of activity many times greater than that obtained by either drug alone.
Trimidox may be used in cattle and swine where potent systemic antibacterial action against a wide range of sensitive organisms is required.
Trimidox is indicated in cattle for the treatment of bacterial pneumonias including bovine pneumonia pasteurellosis (shipping fever), primarily enteric and septicaemic colibacillosis and salmonellosis, infectious pododermatitis (foot rot, foul in the foot) and septicaemias.
Trimidox is indicated in swine for the treatment of bacterial pneumonias, colibacillosis and post-weaning scours, mastitis-metritis-agalactia syndrome of sows (MMA) and bacterial arthritis.
Ingrédients of Trimidox
Each mL of Trimidox contains 40 mg of trimethoprim and 200 mg of sulfadoxine.
Directions for Use of Trimidox
Trimidox should be administered at a dose rate of 1 mL per 15 kg body weight daily. In piglets weighing less than 4.5 kg do not exceed a dose of 0.5 mL.
Intramuscular injection is recommended for cattle and swine, but if a particularly rapid response is required in acute infections Trimidox can be administered by slow intravenous injection.
Treatment should continue for 2 - 3 days after symptoms have subsided. The usual course of treatment is no longer than 5 consecutive days.
