Resumo: Penicillin is administered intravenously (IV) or intramuscularly (IM) to horses for the prevention and treatment of infections, and both routes have disadvantages. To minimize these shortcomings, a 24-hr hybrid administration protocol (HPP) was developed. Our objective was to determine penicillin plasma concentrations in horses administered via HPP. Venous blood was collected from seven healthy horses administered IV potassium penicillin G at 0 and 6 hr and IM procaine penicillin G at 12 hr. Blood was collected at 2-hr intervals from 0 to 20 hr and at 24 hr. Plasma penicillin concentrations were measured using liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. Penicillin susceptibility from equine isolates was examined to determine pharmacodynamic targets. The MIC90 of penicillin for 264 isolates of Streptococcus sp. was ≤0.06 µg/ml. For the 24-hr dosing interval, the mean plasma penicillin concentration was >0.07 µg/ml. Five horses (72%) exceeded 0.06 µg/ml for 98% of the dosing interval, and two horses exceeded this value for 52%-65% of the dosing interval. The HPP achieved mean plasma penicillin concentrations in healthy adult horses above 0.07 µg/ml for a 24-hr dosing interval. However, individual variations in plasma concentrations were apparent and deserve future clinical study.
