I was told that there is a Country wide shortage of Co Trimoxazole so Dennis has been given Sulfatrim instead.They are the same. Co Trimoxazole is septrin, which is the same as Sulfatrim. I am really confused as to what your vet is doing.
The Co Trimoxazole was 40mg/200mg (says this on label of bottle) and the dosage 2ml twice a day.
The Sulftrim is 16mg/ml + 80mg/ml trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole (says this on box, on label it says 30ml per ml) and the dosage is 0.31ml twice a day.
It's next to impossible to see the vet atm because of the Lockdown and they have also had a positive Covid test in one of the Practice nurses so I have to trust that the vet is doing what is right for Dennis
