Virbac Launches Sulfatrim, the First Licensed TMPS Antibiotic for Rabbits
Virbac has launched Sulfatrim, the first veterinary-licensed Trimethoprim and Sulfamethoxazole oral antibiotic for use in rabbits, pigeons and bearded dragons. Presented in a 30ml bottle with a dispensing cap and syringe for convenient yet responsible antibiotic use in practice.
Kate Woolley MRCVS, Product Manager, said: "Until now, no similar veterinary-licensed product has been available for these species and, in an environment where vets are increasingly aware of the responsible use of antibiotics across all species, we are very happy to launch Sulfatrim, the first licensed TMPS for rabbits, pigeons and bearded dragons.”
