Key Features

  • Polyflex is a fast-acting treatment against respiratory tract infections.
  • Provides bactericidal activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
  • Labeled for treatment of bacterial pneumonia (shipping fever, calf pneumonia and bovine pneumonia) caused Aerobacter spp., Klebsiella spp., Staphylococcus spp.,
  • Streptococcus spp., Pasteurella multocida and E. coli susceptible to ampicillin trihydrate.
  • Polyflex offers a more economical alternative to expensive third-generation cephalosporin drugs.

  • Pasteurella multocida
  • Streptococcus spp.
  • Staphylococcus spp.
  • Klebsiella spp.
  • Aerobacter spp.
  • Bacterial pneumonia (bovine pneumonia, calf pneumonia, and shipping fever)

Polyflex has proved effective in the treatment of many infections previously beyond the spectrum of penicillin therapy. This drug is particularly indicated in the treatment of the following infections caused by susceptible strains of organisms:

Dogs and Cats - Respiratory Tract Infections: Upper respiratory infections, tonsillitis and bronchopneumonia due to hemolytic streptococci, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis and Pasteurella spp.

Urinary Tract Infections due to Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli,Staphylococcus spp., hemolytic streptococci and Enterococcus spp.

Skin, Soft Tissue and Post-Surgical Infections: Abscesses, pustular dermatitis, cellulitis and infections of the anal gland, due to Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis,hemolytic streptococci, Staphylococcus spp. and Pasteurella spp.

Cattle and Calves Including Non-Ruminating (Veal Calves) - Respiratory Tract Infections: Bacterial pneumonia (shipping fever, calf pneumonia and bovine pneumonia) caused by Aerobacter spp., Klebsiella spp., Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Pasteurella multocida and E. coli susceptible to ampicillin trihydrate.

Dosage: The dosage of Polyflex will vary according to the animal being treated, the severity of the infection and the animal's response.

Dogs and Cats - The recommended dose for dogs or cats is 3 mg/lb of body weight administered twice daily by subcutaneous or intramuscular injection.

Cattle and Calves Including Non-Ruminating (Veal Calves) - From 2 mg to 5 mg/lb of body weight once daily by intramuscular injection. Do not treat for more than 7 days.

In all species, 3 days treatment is usually adequate, but treatment should be continued for 48 to 72 hours after the animal has become afebrile or asymptomatic.

Top Reasons to Use Polyflex with Total Confidence

Polyflex goes beyond conventional penicillin therapy. POLYFLEX offers reliable treatment of infections, caused by Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.

  1. Fast-acting treatment against respiratory tract infections
    • Labeled for treatment of bacterial pneumonia (shipping fever, calf pneumonia and bovine pneumonia) caused Aerobacter spp., Klebsiella spp., Staphylococcus spp.,
    • Streptococcus spp., Pasteurella multocida and E. coli susceptible to ampicillin trihydrate.
  2. Short milk and meat withdrawal times
    • Follow the 48-hour milk withholding and six-day slaughter withdrawal times after the last treatment. POLYFLEX has predictable withdrawal periods when compared to more variable withdrawal periods associated with the use of penicillin.
  3. Convenient Dosing at 2mL per 100 lbs*
    • *Start by adding 79 mL sterile water to the bottle. Gently shake to reconstitute and make 100 mLs of POLYFLEX. Administer 2 mL per 100 lbs body weight. This delivers 5 mg ampicillin per lb body weight.
    • For flexible dosing, consult your veterinarian for guidance when using the flexible dosing from 2 mg-5 mg/lb.
  4. Economical treatment cost
    • POLYFLEX offers a more economical treatment cost compared to third-generation cephalosporin drugs.
