  • PHARMACOKINETICS OF PENICILLIN-G IN TURKEY AMERICAN JOURNAL OF VETERINARY RESEARCH Hirsh, D. C., Knox, S. J., CONZELMAN, G. M., WIGER, N. 1978; 39 (7): 1219-1221

    Abstract:

    Parmacokinetics of penicillin G was determined for the turkey. The study was prompted by the isolation of a sulfonamide-resistant strain of Pasteurella multocida from tissues of turkeys involved in an outbreak of fowl cholera and the subsequent discovery that little pharmacologic information was available concerning other antimicrobial agents in that species. Penicillin G was chosen for study because P multocida is susceptible to this antibiotic. The elimination of the antibiotic followed first-order kinetics, and the half-life was found to be 0.5 hours. Parenteral administration of benzathine-procaine penicillin G resulted in higher concentrations, which persisted for longer periods than did procaine or potassium salts of the antibiotic.
