The combination of amoxicillin and gentamicin acts synergistically against a wide range of infections caused by both Gram-positive (e.g. Staphylococcus, Streptococcus and Corynebacterium spp.) and Gram-negative (e.g. E.coli, Pasteurella, Salmonella and Pseudomonas spp.) bacteria in cattle and swine. Amoxicillin inhibits mainly in Gram-positive bacteria the cross-linkage between the linear peptidoglycan polymer chains that make up a major component of the cell wall. Gentamicin binds to the 30S subunit of the ribosome of mainly Gram-negative bacteria, thereby interrupting protein synthesis.
Clamoxon SP is indicated for the treatment of respiratory, gastrointestinal, biliary and urinary tract infections. It is also indicated for the treatment of infection of the uterus and navel as well as mastitis and secondary infections.
Cattle and pigs: 15 mg of amoxicillin and gentamicin 4,000 IU / kg body weight equivalent to 1 ml of Clamoxon SP/10 kg body weight for 3 days. Give intramuscularly.
