LEXINGTON, Ky., Dec. 21, 2015 — Neogen is proud to introduce a new method of administering its popular equine antibiotic. Apple-flavored UNIPRIM® is now available in a single-dose pouch. UNIPRIM is an FDA-approved, fast-acting, powerful antibiotic for horses that is labeled to treat a wide spectrum of bacterial infections.

“The great thing about UNIPRIM is it is a convenient, costeffective way to treat your horse,” said Neogen’s Equine Marketing Manager Laura Hadley. “Just open the pouch and pour it over your horse’s feed.” One single-dose pouch contains 37.5 grams of powder, which is enough to treat an 1,100-pound horse (the recommended dosage is 3.75 grams per 110 pounds). Single-dose pouches of UNIPRIM are also available in the product’s regular flavor.

UNIPRIM is a combination of 67 mg trimethoprim and 333 mg sulfadiazine per gram, which provides effective antibacterial activity. In addition to the new UNIPRIM apple-flavored pouches, Neogen is transitioning all UNIPRIM products from the Macleod brand to the Neogen®Vet brand. Neogen offers UNIPRIM in a variety of packaging options to meet veterinarian and horse owner needs — UNIPRIM 37.5 gram single-dose pouches, 200 gram jars, 1200 gram jars, 400 gram jars, and 2000 gram pails in both regular and apple flavors, and UNIPRIM 1125 gram pouch in regular flavor.

Neogen Corporation (Nasdaq: NEOG) develops and markets products dedicated to food and animal safety. Neogen’s Animal Safety Division markets a complete line of diagnostics, veterinary instruments, veterinary pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements, disinfectants, and rodenticides.
