ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: DESCRIPTION
Duplocillin® LA is a sterile aqueous suspension for injection, containing per mL 150,000 I.U. procaine penicillin G (B.P.) and 150,000 I.U. benzathine penicillin G (B.P.) and as preservatives, 1.2 mg methylparahydroxybenzoate and 0.13 mg propylparahydroxybenzoate.
Duplocillin® LA is indicated as an aid in the treatment of local and systemic infections caused by bacteria including metritis, strangles and tetanus in horses, blackleg, foot rot, metritis and shipping fever complex in cattle, erysipelas, mastitis and metritis in swine, clostridial diseases and foot rot in sheep and metritis respiratory infections and wound infections in dogs and cats, where a prolongation of the therapeutic period from a single injection is required. Penicillin has been shown in vitro to be effective against gram positive aerobic bacteria, including certain strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus Spp., Actinomyces Spp., (Corynebacteria) and Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae. Sensitive gram positive anaerobic bacteria include certain strains of Clostridia Spp. Penicillin has also been shown in vitro to be effective against certain gram negative bacteria, including certain strains of Pasteurella multocida and Actinobacillus (Haemophilus) pleuropneumoniae.
