Developing antibiotics of the highest quality is a longstanding tradition at Ceva. The company has mastered the main anti-infective molecules currently on the world veterinary market. Ceva provides practitioners with sound expertise in the sustainable use of veterinary anti-infectives. The majority of products developed are available in injectable form with different formulations to provide a fast or delayed (long) action. Some of those injectable anti-infectives (Vetrimoxin® LA, Tenaline® LA, Spirovet®…) are presented in the innovative CLAS® (Ceva Layered Anti Shatter) vials. The use if this new technology ensures that the antibiotics can be bottled in lightweight, shock resistant, stable and easy to use vials.
Amoxicillin is semisynthetic broad-spectrum penicillin with a bactericidal effect against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. It is used in the treatments of gastrointestinal, respiratory and urinary tract infections caused by amoxicillin sensitive micro-organisms, like Campylobacter, Clostridium, Corynebacterium, E. coli, Erysipelothrix, Haemophilus, Pasteurella, Salmonella, penicillinase negative Staphylococcus and Streptococcus spp. in calves, cattle, goats, sheep, and swine. The antibiotic is bound to a special binding protein, the synthesis of the cell wall is inhibited by the blockage of synthesis of peptidoglycan, and autolytic enzymes are activated in the cell wall resulting in wall lesions and cell death. Amoxicillin is mainly excreted in urine. A major part can also be excreted in bile.
