PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Gentamicin is a broad-spectrum aminoglycoside antibiotic with activity against Gram-postive (eg. Staphylococci, Streptococci, Corynebacterium spp.) and Gram-negative bacteria. In contrast with most other currently used antibiotics, gentamicin exerts pronounced bactericidal activity against several, often multi-resistant, Gram-negative pathogens, such as E. Coli, Salmonella spp., Klebsiella spp., Proteus spp. and Pseudomonas spp.

INDICATIONS

For treatment of infectious diseases, caused by Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria susceptible to gentamicin, such as: respiratory tract infections, gastric and intestinal infections (colibacillosis, salmonellosis), uro-genital tract infections, skin and wound infections, septicaemia, arthritis, omphalitis, otitis and tonsillitis in dogs.

CONTRA-INDICATIONS

Overdosing may result in neuromuscular block, especially after intravenous administration and in anaesthetised animals. Use in anaesthetised animals is contra-indicated.

DOSAGE AND MODE OF ADMINISTRATION

By intramuscular, subcutaneous or slow intravenous injection.

Cattle, pigs: 2-4 mg Gentamicin/ kg b.w. (4-8 ml Gentamycin 50) once or twice daily.

Dogs, cats: 1 ml/ 10kg b.w. once or twice daily

By intrauterine infusion (mares): 25-50 ml + 250-500ml of physiological saline solution.

UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS
