Dog Antibiotics

Most dog antibiotics require a prescription from your pet's veterinarian. This is because they can have side effects and some dogs can have adverse reactions. They can also cause complications if given improperly or for too long. If it is hard to get your dog to take a pill, the antibiotic baytril is available in a tasty chewable tablet. However, as with all chewable pet meds you will want to be careful and keep the medication out of your pet's reach so they do not accidentally overdose on the product. There are also some liquid drop variety antibiotics that are popular for cats, but many, including cefa drops, amoxi drops, antirobe liquid, albon suspension and others can be given to dogs too. Your dog's veterinarian should know what antibiotic will work best for your dog's specific requirements. Some of the more sought after antibiotics for dogs among pet owners here at DiscountPetMedicines.com are amoxicillin, baytril, cipro, doxycycline, cephalexin, gentocin and amoxi drops.

Most of those listed above in our "Dog Antibiotic" section are also used to treat felines. However, there a few such as BioMox that should not be given to cats. Your veterinarian will know which ones are most suitable.

You'll also see some names for fish antibiotics with "Forte" on the end - this usually indicates a double strength dose. Fish medications usually come in dissolvable tablets..
