Oxytetracycline 10% 250ml
Oxytetracycline is a bacteriostatic antibiotic with a broad spectrum of activity. This means that both Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria are susceptible. The bacteriostatic effect is achieved through interfering with the bacteria’s protein synthesis. After being injected intramuscularly therapeutic serum concentrations are achieved rapidly and are maintained for about 24 hours.
