A BROAD SPECTRUM TARGETING THE MOST COMMON BACTERIAL INFECTIONS IN SWINE
The antibiotics used for first-line therapy must be active against the most likely pathogens, as estimated based on the suspected source of infection, patients’s medical history, careful clinical examination, and eventually bacteriological findings.
Amoxicillin bactericidal properties cover a broad spectrum of bacteria, especially the most commonly pathogens isolated in swine.1,2,3
Amoxicilllin remains the first-line treatment for use in sows and piglets.4

VETRIMOXIN® LA: EXCEPTIONAL RESUSPENSION AND SYRINGEABILITY FULLY ADAPTED TO SMALL NEEDLES5
Ceva Sante Animale has developed a unique formulation, based on micronised raw material, to be easily resuspended and injected. Thus it is more adapted to swine industry where antibiotics need to be injected also using thin needles.
100% of Vetrimoxin® LA samples needed less than 30 seconds to push 10 ml of suspension through a 0,8 mm needle. This outperformed other injectable LA amoxicillins tested.

CLAS VIAL: A REVOLUTIONARY CONTAINER EASY TO USE AND SECURE
Vetrimoxin® LA bottles are in multilayer plastic. They present the same characteristics as the glass bottles and in addition offer the fundamental specific features listed below:
A SPECIFIC FORMULATION FOR HIGH EFFICACY ON BOTH DOSE AND TIME DEPENDANT BACTERIA6
Thanks to its broad spectrum and balanced pharmacological behavior-hydrophilic and hydrophobic, Vetrimoxin® LA can be used as a first-line antibiotic and emergency treatment before bacterial identification.
Vetrimoxin® LA is rapidly effective with high plasma peak about 2 hours after injection and its exceptional formulation also allows long action up to 48 hours:
