Procaine and benzathine penicillin G are small-spectrum penicillines with a bactericidal action against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria like Campylobacter, Clostridium, Corynebacterium, Erysipelothrix, Haemophilus, Listeria, Pasteurella, penicillinase negative Staphylococcus and Streptococcus spp. After intramuscular administration within 1 to 2 hours therapeutic blood levels are obtained. Because of the slow resorption of benzathine penicillin G, the action is maintained for two days.
Arthritis, mastitis and gastrointestinal, respiratory and urinary tract infections caused by penicillin sensitive micro-organisms, like Campylobacter, Clostridium, Corynebacterium, Erysipelothrix, Haemophilus, Listeria, Pasteurella, penicillinase-negative Staphylococcus and Streptococcus spp. in calves, cattle, goats, sheep and swine.
