Cefpodoxime Proxetil Cephalosporin Antibiotic Tablets for Pets

Generic to Simplicef

What is Cefpodoxime Proxetil?

Cefpodoxime Proxetil is an antibiotic that is in the class of cephalosporins. It is the generic for Simplicef and Vantin. It is specifically a third generation cephalosporin and is used for infections in dogs, specifically for skin infections. Your cat's veterinarian may also prescribe it off-label for your cat where appropriate.

What you should know about Cefpodoxime Proxetil:

Cefpodoxime Proxetil generally does not cause major side effects. It can cause diarrhea and vomiting. If your pet has severe diarrhea or vomiting, you should contact your pet's veterinarian. If your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to any cephalosporin antibiotic, you should not give cefpodoxime proxetil to them. It is important to finish the entire course of the antibiotic that your pet's veterinarian indicated, so your pet can have the best results. 

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.
