Scored white bolus-shaped antibacterial tablets. Each bolus contains:
Trimethoprim Ph.Eur. 200 mg
Sulfadiazine Ph.Eur. 1.0 g
Trimacare Boluses are primarily indicated for oral use in calves for the treatment of bacterial scours but may also be used for treatment of acute salmonellosis and bacterial pneumonia. Together the active ingredients produce a double blockade of folinic acid synthesis in bacteria giving a level of activity many times greater than that obtained from either drug alone. In vitro Trimacare Bolus is effective against most common Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria including Escherichia coli, Klebsiella spp., Pasteurella spp., Salmonella spp. and Staphylococcus spp.
The boluses are particularly effective against Escherichia coli and Salmonella spp. infections.
Dosage and administration
CALVES: The daily dose is one bolus per 40 kg (90lb) bodyweight given orally, providing 30mg of combined active constituents per kg bodyweight daily.
Treatment should be repeated daily until two days after the symptoms have resolved, but in cases of salmonellosis and bacterial pneumonia, treatment should be continued for five consecutive days. Treatment must not be continued for more than five days.
Trimacare Boluses may be administered whole, by hand or by balling gun, or dispersed in water.
Dosage by dispersion in water: Disperse each bolus by shaking in about 300 ml of water in a dosing bottle. This may be facilitated by crushing the bolus before placing it in the bottle. After dosing by this method any unused material should be discarded.
