U.S. VET® AMPICILLIN SODIUM (FOR HORSES)

G.C. Hanford

For Intravenous or Intramuscular Use in Horses Only

DESCRIPTION

Ampicillin sodium is a semisynthetic penicillin with a broad spectrum of activity. Ampicillin is derived from the penicillin nucleus, 6-aminopenicillanic acid (6 APA). Chemically it is D(-)α-aminobenzyl penicillin sodium salt.

ACTION

Ampicillin sodium provides bactericidal activity against a wide range of common Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens. Ampicillin’s activity occurs during the stage of active multiplication of the pathogen and acts through inhibition of biosynthesis of cell wall mucopeptide. In vivo studies have demonstrated the susceptibility of many strains of the following Gram-positive bacteria: Staphylococcus spp. and Streptococcus spp. (including S. equi).

In vivo studies have also demonstrated the susceptibility of many strains of the following Gram-negative bacteria: E. coli and Proteus mirabilis. Because it does not resist destruction by penicillinase, it is not effective against penicillinase-producing bacteria, particularly resistant staphylococci. Most strains of Pseudomonas, Klebsiella and Aerobacter are resistant.

Ampicillin sodium diffuses readily into all body tissues and fluids, with the exception of brain and spinal fluid except when the meninges are inflamed.

It produces high and persistent blood levels. Most of the ampicillin is excreted unchanged in the urine.

INDICATIONS

Ampicillin sodium is indicated in the treatment of susceptible strains of the organisms causing the following infections in the horse: Respiratory tract infections (pneumonia and strangles) due to Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp. (including S. equi), E. coli, and Proteus mirabilis.

Skin and soft tissue infections (abscesses and wounds) due to Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Proteus mirabilis.

As with all antibiotics, appropriate in vitro culturing and susceptibility testing of samples taken before treatment should be conducted.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

The use of this drug is contraindicated in animals with a history of an allergic reaction to penicillin.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Ampicillin is a semisynthetic penicillin and has the potential for producing allergic reactions. If an allergic reaction occurs, administer epinephrine and/or steroids. Possible minor irritation at the injection site may occur.

WARNING

Do NOT use in horses intended for human consumption.

CAUTION

Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

HORSES - The recommended dose is 3 mg per pound of body weight administered twice a day. Ampicillin sodium may be administered by either the intravenous or intramuscular route.
