Ceftiofur is a semi-synthetic antibiotic from the cephalosporin of third generation. It has a broad spectrum of activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (Pasteurella haemolytica (Mannheimia spp.), Escherichia coli, Pasteurella multocida, Haemophilus somnus, Fusobacterium necrophorum and Bacteroides melaninogenicus (Porphyromonas asaccharolytica), Arcanobacterium pyogenes, Fusobacterium necrophorum, Arcanobacterium pyogenes, Pasteurella multocida, Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae and  Streptococcus suis). Ceftiofur blocks the synthesis of bacteria cell walls by inhibiting the synthesis of peptidoglycan.

After the injection ceftiofur quickly undergoes metabolism and produces desfuroylceftiofur, an active metabolite. Through binding to plasma proteins, the active metabolite of ceftiofur is concentrated at the site of inflammation.

The maximum blood plasma concentration occurs after 1-2 hours from the administration.

Ceftiofur is excreted primarily in the urine and partly with faeces.


Cattle: Treatment of animals suffering from acute postpartum endometritis, necrobacteriosis and respiratory diseases, caused by microorganisms (Escherichia coli, Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida, Haemophillus somnus) which are sensitive to Ceftiofur.
