Description

Terramycin (Oxytetracycline Hydrochloride and Polymyxin B Sulfate Ophthalmic Ointment) is an antibiotic,bright yellow in color, possessing potent antimicrobial activity. It is one of the most versatile of the broad-spectrum antibiotics, and is effective in the treatment of infections due to gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, both aerobic and anaerobic, spirochetes, rickettsiae, and certain of the larger viruses.

Polymyxin B sulfate is one of a group of related antibiotics derived from Bacillus polymyxa. The polymyxins are rapidly bactericidal, this action being exclusively against gram-negative bacteria.

The broad-spectrum effectiveness of Terramycin against both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms is enhanced by the particular effectiveness of polymyxin B against infections associated with gram-negative organisms, especially those due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa, where polymyxin B is the antibiotic of choice. In addition, there is evidence to indicate that polymyxin B sulfate possesses some antifungal activity. The combined antibacterial effect of Terramycin plus polymyxin is at least additive and, in many instances, an actual synergistic action is obtained.

Terramycin is an ointment of oxytetracycline hydrochloride and polymyxin B sulfate in a special petrolatum base. Each gram of ointment contains oxytetracycline HCl equivalent to 5 mg of oxytetracycline and 10,000 units of polymyxin B as the sulfate.

Key Benefits

  • Provides dual antibiotic activity to fight bacterial infections
  • Effective against a variety of primary and secondary eye infections in dogs and cats
  • Aids in the treatment of Chlamydia eye infections in cats

How It Works

One of its main ingredients, oxytetracycline, works by blocking the ability of bacteria to produce proteins which helps them to grow and multiply.

Indications

Terramycin is indicated for the prophylaxis and local treatment of superficial ocular infections due to oxytetracycline and polymyxin-sensitive organisms, including infections due to streptococci, rickettsiae, E. coli, and A.aerogenes, such as conjunctivitis, keratitis, pink eye, corneal ulcer, blepharitis in dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, and horses; ocular infections due to secondary bacterial complications of distemper in dogs, and bacterial inflammatory conditions which may occur secondary to other infectious diseases in the above species.

Needed this for my furbaby and couldn't get into my regular vet. Was able to get the same medication, at a much cheaper price than the vets office. Now my cat is much better. Highly recommend ! Will purchase from again.

Terramycin works great for what it is intended to treat. Medicine cabinet not complete without it, especially if you have a lot of animals or foster often for rescues/shelters.

Unable to get vetropolycin prescribed from my vet or anywhere on-line due to a recall of that product. Found this product online with no prescription required, cleared up my chow chows eye infection within four days. Great product.

This website had the cheapest price. The shipment was quick. My cat had conjunctivitis and teramycin helped her on day 2. I couldn’t see my cat suffering so you can imagine how happy I was to see my cat back to normal in 2 days. What I didn’t like about the ointment is that ones i squeeze the tube the ointment continuously was coming out and I couldn’t stop it. So I had to put extra ointment in a jar for a future use.
Merchant Response:Yelena, these Terramycin tubes can be finicky. We found slow and steady is best. Glad to have you an your cat as customers!
