How does Tucoprim work?
It works by blocking the bacteria's ability to make DNA, resulting in death of the bacteria.

Is there a generic equivalent available?

How is it given?
Tucoprim powder is given with a small amount of feed. Have fresh drinking water available at all times. Do not allow the horse to become dehydrated while receiving Tucoprim.

Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Use all of the medication prescribed, even if your horse appears well. If the entire course of treatment is not given, the infection may recur or worsen.

What results can I expect?
Tucoprim is rapidly absorbed. It is active against many different types of bacteria. It is usually given once a day for five to seven days, although this may vary depending upon the type of infection being treated. If doses are missed or the entire treatment regimen is not completed, the infection could recur or worsen. Consult your veterinarian if the animal's condition does not improve or worsens after beginning treatment with Tucoprim.
