Procaine and benzathine penicillin G are small-spectrum penicillins 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. 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.

Direction for use
Restricted Drug (Under California Law); Use Only as Directed. The suspension should be administered by deep intramuscular injection within the fleshy muscles of the hip, rump, round or thigh, or into the neck, changing the site for each injection. Do not inject subcutaneously, into a blood vessel, or near a major nerve.
Use a 16 or 18 gauge need, 1.5 inches long. The needle and syringe should be washed thoroughly before use. The needle and syringe should then be sterilized by placing in boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes.
The injection site should be washed with soap and water and painted with a germicide such as tincture of iodine or 70% alcohol. The product should then be administered by using the following procedure:
1) Warm the vial to room temperature and shake thoroughly to ensure uniform suspension.
2) Wipe the rubber stopper on top of the vial with a piece of absorbent cotton soaked in 70% alcohol.
3) Inject air into the vial for easier withdrawal.
4) After filling the syringe, make sure the needle is empty by pulling back the plunger of the syringe until a small air bubble appears. Then detach the needle from the syringe.
5) Insert the needle deep into the muscle, attach the syringe and withdraw the plunger slightly. If blood appears, withdraw the needle and insert it into a different location.
6) Inject the dose slowly. Do not massage the site of the injection.
7) Not more than 10 mL should be injected into one location.
Daily treatment should be continued for at least 48 hours after temperature has returned to normal and all other signs of infection have subsided. Animals treated with Penicillin G Procaine Injectable Suspension should show noticeable improvement within 36 to 48 hours.
Penicillin Injectable is administered by the intramuscular route. The product is ready for injection after warming the vial to room temperature and shaking to ensure a uniform suspension.
