- Ceftiofur crystalline free acid (CCFA) is a long-acting, third generation cephalosporin labeled for use in cattle, pigs, and horses. A number of recent studies have investigated the pharmacokinetics of CCFA in various taxa including non-domestic mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish. This review summarizes the current available literature and provides tables to guide dosing based on the minimum inhibitory concentrations of various pathogens of veterinary interest.
