Composition: 1 ml solution for injection contains 80 mg Gentamicin base (as sulfate).
Indications: NEOGENT is used for the treatment of diseases, especially respiratory and urogenital tract of domestic animals, infections of the skin and soft tissue infections, arthritis and septicemia caused by micro-organisms susceptible to gentamicin.
Contraindications: The drug is not administered to neonates and gravid animals, and animals with impaired renal function and diseases of the inner ear, as well as in animals allergic to gentamicin and other aminoglycoside antibiotics.
Side effects: Frequent use of gentamicin can cause damage to the kidneys, the organs of hearing and balance. The cats show special sensitivity, so that therapeutic doses lead to severe damage of vestibular function (balance disorder with ataxia) and damage of kidneys. In such cases therapy should be dismissed. There are possible allergic reactions to gentamicine. Gentamicin can cause neuromuscular weakness, nausea, and increases in transaminases and alkaline phosphatase. Gentamicin may contribute to decreasing heart rate and depression of blood pressure. If side effects occur during the drug administration, the treatment should be stopped and symptomatic therapy should be initiated.

Do not apply simultaneously with neuromuscular blocking agents, general anesthetics and magnesium sulfate. Ototoxic and nephrotoxic effects were observed in all of the target species.
