It is used to treat arthritis, mastitis, gastrointestinal, respiratory and urinary tract infections caused by penicillin-sensitive microorganisms in calves, cattle, goats, sheep, and pigs. After intramuscular administration within 1 to 2 hours, therapeutic blood concentrations are obtained. Due to the slow reabsorption of benzathine penicillin, the action is maintained for two days.
