Veterinarians prescribe the powerful antibiotic Azithromycin for dogs and cats with bacterial infections of the lungs, throat, ears and skin. We compound the medication into a variety of formulations and dosage amounts that make it easier to give your pet the medication he needs.
Azithromycin is often veterinarians’ medication of choice for treating bacterial infections in dogs and cats. This prescription antibiotic is formulated to prevent bacteria from producing the proteins needed for growth, which effectively kills the bacteria and stops the spread of the infection. Azithromycin is effective against bacterial infections of the throat, ears, skin and lungs. Proper dosage and administration of Azithromycin is critical. Our compounding service helps by blending the right dosage for your pet into an easy to administer formula. Choose the one your pet will like best: small capsules or an oral suspension flavored with fish or chicken. Note: use the oral suspension within three months. Do not keep the medication beyond its use date. Call us if your pet's veterinarian has prescribed any variation from the listed dose strengths or quantities of this compounded medication.

Resistance is a major concern when giving antibiotics. Resistance occurs when bacteria survive and mutate and are then able to survive even after antibiotics are given. To help avoid any resistance, it is important to give antibiotics as they are prescribed for as long as they are prescribed even if your pet is looking and feeling better.
