Product properties


Each ml contains: Enrofloxacin   100 mg

Mechanism of Action:

Enrofloxacin is a broad spectrum and bactericidal antibiotic that belongs to fluoroquinolones that prevents DNA transcription via  inhibiting DNA Gyrase enzyme activity and converts DNA to small and inactive parts which result in bacterial death. This drug is used for controlling and treatment diseases caused by aerobic Gram negative bacilli and cocci (E. Coli, Salmonella, Pasteurella and Haemophilus) and Gram positive bacteria (Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Corynebacterium, Clostridium, Listeria monocytogenes) and also Mycoplasma spp.

After injecting 2.5 mg/kg calf bodyweight,  Enrofloxacin concentration reaches to 0.9 mg per ml of blood serum after 1 hour but its concentration in tissues such as lungs, heart, liver, kidney and lymphatic system is 2 or 3 times more than its concentration in CSF.

This drug is excreted via kidney and non-kidney route (15-50 percent of this drug is excreted via urine through both tubular secretion and glomerular filtration) without any change in the molecule. The rest of drug is excreted via faeces. Half life of drug is 3 hours.
