Duphatrim IS is a broad-spectrum antibacterial indicated in the treatment of a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative organisms.

The two active ingredients, trimethoprim and sulfadiazine, sequentially block bacterial and protozoal synthesis of folinic acid, thus greatly potentiating the activity obtained when either ingredient is used alone.

In vitro antibacterial activity of Duphatrim IS is extensive, including Actinobacillus spp, Actinomyces spp, Bordetella spp, Brucella spp, Corynebacterium spp, E. coli, Haemophilus spp, Klebsiella spp, Pasteurella spp, Pneumococcus spp, Proteus spp, Salmonella spp, Staphylococcus spp (including penicillin-sensitive and penicillin-resistant), Streptococcus spp.

Duphatrim IS is indicated for use in horses, cattle, pigs, dogs and cats, for the treatment of acute, subacute and chronic bacterial infections sensitive to trimethoprim/sulfadiazine therapy such as:

Bacterial infections of the respiratory tract, including rhinitis, pneumonia, bronchitis and in bacterial infections secondary to viral disease such as viral pneumonia or mycoplasma infections.

Urogenital tract infections, including cystitis, vaginitis, urethritis, nephritis and metritis.

Alimentary tract infections, including neonatal diarrhoea and salmonellosis.

Other infections, such as foul-in-the-foot, severe mastitis, bacterial agalactia of sows, infections of the eye, ear or mouth.

Dosage and administration

Cattle and pigs:

The recommended dose rate is 15mg of active ingredients per kilogram bodyweight (1ml per 16kg bodyweight) once by intramuscular or slow intravenous injection, but in severe infections it may be repeated daily until 2 days after symptoms resolve up to a maximum of 5 days.

Duphatrim IS may be administered by intravenous injection when rapid blood levels of trimethoprim and Sulfadiazine are required.


The recommended dose rate is 15mg of active ingredients per kilogram bodyweight (1ml per 16 kg bodyweight), by slow intravenous injection.

Dogs and Cats:

The recommended dose rate is 30mg of active ingredients per kilogram bodyweight (1ml per 8kg bodyweight), by subcutaneous injection only.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Injections should not be given by routes other than those recommended. Not to be administered


Adequate drinking water should be available during the therapeutic effect of the product.

Do not administer to animals with known sulphonamide sensitivity, severe liver parenchymal damage, or blood dyscrasias. As with all Trimethoprim/Sulphonamide formulations the possibility of potential damage to the kidney or liver or haemapoeitic system should be considered.

Do not administer to horses exhibiting drug-induced cardiac arrhythmias. Such arrhythmias may be associated with the administration of certain anaesthetic and sedative agents. The intravenous route is contraindicated in the case of concurrent or previous administration of central nervous system depressants (e.g. anaesthetics, neuroleptics).

Anaphylactic shock has been observed on rare occasions following administration of potentiated sulphonamide preparations, mostly after intravenous injection. For intravenous administration the product should be warmed to body temperature and injected slowly over as long a period as is reasonably practical. At the first sign of intolerance the injection should be interrupted and shock treatment initiated.

The possibility of anaphylaxis should be considered and the intravenous route in the horse should only be used if therapeutically justified.
