Therapeutic indications:

KANAMIKAN-P is used for the treatment of acute mastitis in cows, goats, sheep.

Composition of the veterinary drug:

The 10 g of the drug contains:

•          100. 000 IU of kanamycin sulfate;

•          300. 000 IU of procaine benzylpenicillin;

•          20 mg of prednisolone;

Pharmacological activity:

Kanamycin sulfate is aminoglycoside antibiotic, which has a bactericidal effect on many gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms, including: Escherichia coli, Proteus spp., Salmonella spp., Staphylococcus spp., Campylobacter spp.  and other.  It is less active against streptococci and gram-negative cocci.  The resistance of microorganisms to kanamycin develops slowly and to a minor extent.

The mechanism of kanamycin action is based on binding to the 30S subunit of bacterial ribosomes and inhibition of the protein biosynthesis.

The active substance of the drug is procaine benzylpenicillin, a long-acting antibiotic of the penicillin group with a narrow spectrum of bactericidal action.  Procaine benzylpenicillin is predominantly effective against gram-positive microorganisms, such as: Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Corynebacterium spp.  and etc.

Procaine benzylpenicillin inhibits the synthesis of acetylmuramic acid, that is required for building a bacterial cell wall.

Prednisolone has anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effects, reduces udder swelling and inflammation.  Prednisolone does not have an adverse effect on the activity of white blood cells (WBC) in the inflammation area and increases the penetration of antibiotics into tissues.

When administered via intramammary injection, the active substances of the drug are quickly distributed in mammary gland tissues and absorbed into the bloodstream to an insignificant extent.  The drug is excreted from the body mainly with the urine, partly with the bile.


KANAMIKAN-P is used for the treatment of acute mastitis in cows, goats, sheep.

Before drug administration, milk out the treated udder quarters; clean and disinfect the nipples. Carefully put is the tip of the syringe in the nipple canal and squeeze out the syringe content. If necessary, heat the syringe up to the animal's body temperature.

KANAMIKAN-P is injected intramammary into each quarter of the udder affected by mastitis with an interval of 12-24 hours, 3-6 injections, depending on the severity of the inflammatory process:

 • Cows – at a dose of 10 g (1 syringe);

 • Sheep and goats – at a dose of 5 g (half of the syringe).

After the drug administration, remove the syringe, pinch the end of the nipple and massage the nipple upwards during 1-2 minutes for better drug distribution. The interval between the drug administration and the subsequent milk collection should be at least 6 hours.
