What is Legacy Gentamicin for Horses?

Legacy Gentamicin for Horses is recommended for the control of bacterial infections of the uterus (metritis) in horses.

How does Legacy Gentamicin for Horses work?

Legacy Gentamicin for Horses contains the active ingredient Gentamicin sulfate, which has antibacterial activity against most gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. Gentamicin sulfate is active against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, indole-positive and -negative Proteus species, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella species, Enterobacter species, Alcaligenes species, Staphylococcus species, and Streptococcus species. Recommended doses of Gentamicin produce serum concentrations bactericidal for most bacteria sensitive to Gentamicin within an hour of the administered dose.

Cautions:

For intra-uterine use in horses only. If a hypersensitivity to any of the components develops, or if overgrowth of nonsusceptible bacteria, fungi, or yeasts occurs, treatment with Legacy Gentamicin for Horses should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted. Although Legacy Gentamicin for Horses is not spermicidal, treatment should not be given the day of breeding.
