Excede (ceftiofur crystalline free acid) Sterile Suspension is the first and only FDA-approved antibiotic for horses that offers a full course of therapy in just two doses. EXCEDE reduces the treatment requirements from 10 once-or twice-daily doses of an oral antibiotic, such as trimethoprim-sulfonamide (TMS), to just two doses. This can make treating equine respiratory infections less stressful for the horse and more convenient for the veterinarian and the horse owner.
- For the treatment of lower respiratory tract infections in horses caused by susceptible strains of Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus (S. zooepidemicus).
HOW IT WORKS
EXCEDE treats lower respiratory tract infections in horses caused by susceptible strains of S. equi subspecies zooepidemicus (S. zooepidemicus). EXCEDE is the first and only antibiotic that is FDA-approved for horses that offers a full 10-day course of therapy in just two treatments.
By providing 10 days of therapy in just two treatments, veterinarians can help optimize compliance and convenience by having to administer fewer doses.
- Fewer administrations mean less potential for missed doses.
- Comparative treatments require 10 once-or twice-daily doses. Maintaining multiple treatments at consistent intervals can cause added stress for the horse as well as for those administering the medication.
- For a full course of therapy, horses must receive the full dose (divided into two separate injections) at regular intervals as prescribed by a veterinarian. PMK OIl
