|Drug Name and Strength||Trimethoprim 40 mg/mL,
Sulfadoxine 200 mg/mL
|Indication||Infections due to susceptible organisms in cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, dogs and cats.|
|Contraindications||Known sulfonamide sensitivity. Hepatic damage. Blood dyscrasias. Prior to and after treatment with sedatives or anaesthetics in still recumbent horses. The subcutaneous and intramuscular routes are not recommended in horses. Do not use the intravenous route in cats for cases of acute infection.|
|Actions||Effective against most Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The two compounds produce a sequential double blockade of bacterial metabolism, giving a level of activity many times greater than that obtained from either drug alone.Erysipelothrix, Leptospira, Pseudomonas and Mycobacterium tuberculosis organisms are not sensitive.|
|Dosage and Administration||Use unused portion within 28 days of first broaching. Cattle, sheep, horses, pigs. 1 mL/15 kg bodyweight daily by intramuscular injection. Increase dose to 1 mL/10 kg bodyweight daily in severe infection. Animals may be treated with injection alone or the initial injections followed by daily administration of an oral Tribrissen or Tribactral formulation. Dogs, cats. Trivetrin may be used to initiate a course of treatment with Tribrissen 20 or 80 tablets; give a single 1 mL/15 kg bodyweight injection if following with the first tablet within 12 hours. Give a 1 mL/8 kg bodyweight injection if administration of the first tablet is to be delayed until the day following injection.Sulfadoxine is long acting in cats and dogs, and while no consequent toxic effects have been reported, very high blood levels of sulfadoxine can follow repeated daily injections of Trivetrin in these species. Tribrissen tablets containing sulfadiazine are more suitable for repeated dosing.Trivetrin is well suited to horses, but should be administered by slow intravenous injection only; the subcutaneous and intramuscular routes are not recommended.Intramuscular injection is recommended for cattle, sheep and pigs (for pigs the usual site behind the ear is recommended).Dogs should be injected subcutaneously in the dorsal region or scruff of the neck. Subcutaneous injections at other sites, intramuscular injections are not recommended since pain reactions have been observed in some cases.Inject cats subcutaneously or intramuscularly. Where necessary, e.g. in acute infection, Trivetrin may be administered intravenously to all of the above species except cats.|
