Primor (sulfadimethoxine/ormetoprim) is a broad-spectrum antibiotic combination used to treat susceptible bacterial infections in dogs. 

Primor is for the treatment of skin and soft tissue infections (wounds and abscesses) in dogs caused by strains of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli and urinary tract infections caused by Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus spp., and Proteus mirabilis susceptible to sulfadimethoxine/ormetoprim.

For: Dogs 

Benefits:
  • Treats skin and soft tissue infections (wounds and abscesses)
  • Also effective against urinary tract infections caused by susceptible bacteria
  • Single, comparatively low dose provides rapid and sustained therapeutic blood levels
How it works: Primor is made up of two antibiotics: sulfadimethoxine and ormetoprim. Together, these antibiotics are even more powerful than when they are used alone, as they block two sequential steps in bacterial folic acid synthesis. The net effect is not only the limiting of bacterial growth, but the killing of bacteria as well. 

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Administer an initial oral dose of 25 mg/lb (55 mg/kg) of body weight on the first day of treatment. Administer subsequent daily doses at the rate of 12.5 mg/lb (27.5 mg/kg) of body weight. Continue treatment for at least 2 days after remission of clinical signs. Do not extend treatment for more than 21 consecutive days. Suggested dosage schedules follow:
