Cefotaxime for Injection is an antibiotic drug used to treat or prevent certain bacterial infections in dogs, cats, poultry and livestock animals like cows or pigs. It is typically used for infections like shipping fever or ones that need intravenous treatment, such as bacteremia or bone and joint infections.

As Cefotaxime is known to cross the blood-brain barrier, it can be used to treat sepsis caused by gram-negative bacteria.

Cefotaxime is a third-generation antibiotic within the cephalosporin family. It works by inhibiting cell wall synthesis within the bacteria. This antibiotic shows broad-spectrum bactericidal activity against many gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including E. Coli. It should be noted that Cefotaxime is not an effective treatment for infections caused by Enterococcus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus.
