AMPICIL 50% WSP
Contains per g:
Ampicillin trihydrate 500 mg
Ampicillin is a semi-synthetic penicillin with a broad-spectrum activity against many Gram-negative and some Gram-positive bacteria. Ampicillin acts bactericidal by interfering with the cell wall synthesis of bacteria. Ampicillin is acid stable and well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, hence it can be administered in drinking water to be used in control of systemic infections.
AMPICIL 50% WSP is indicated for the treatment of enteritis in calves, lambs and kids caused by E. coli, pneumonia caused by Pasteurella multocida, and infections caused by Salmonella dublin. In poultry, AMPICIL 50% WSP is effective in the treatment of enteritis and airway infections caused by E. coli, Salmonella and Clostridium spp.
Do not administer to animals with known hypersensitivity to the group of penicillins and neither in animals with impaired renal nor hepatic function. Do not use in layers producing eggs for human consumption.
Sometimes gastro-intestinal disturbances, hypersensitivity reactions to penicillins or allergic skin reactions may occur.
INCOMPATIBILITY WITH OTHER DRUGS
Do not combine ampicillin with bacteriostatic antimicrobial drugs.
