How does Uniprim Powder for Horses work?
In horses who require robust systemic antibacterial activity against sensitive pathogens, sulfadiazine and trimethoprim are beneficial. Trimethoprim prevents bacteria from producing tetrahydrofolic acid from dihydrofolic acid. By fighting para-aminobenzoic acid, sulfadiazine inhibits bacterial dihydrofolic acid formation. It operates by reversibly inhibiting and binding to the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase. These powerful antibiotics work in tandem to disrupt bacterial metabolism. They deprive bacteria of essential proteins and nucleic acids for survival and reproduction. This substance is antibacterial and bactericidal in nature.
