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.

    is a prescription needed to buy Cefpodoxime Proxetil (Generic) Tablets
    Asked on 3/13/2014 by laurelgorge from KY, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Laurel,

      Yes, cefpodoxime proxetil (branded as Simplicef) does require a prescription to purchase. Once an order is placed, we can send a fax to the veterinary clinic requesting approval for the prescription that they may fax back, or the veterinarian may opt to issue you a written prescription that you can then mail in to us.

      Thank you,
      VetRxDirect

Comments about Putney Cefpodoxime Proxetil (Generic):

I ordered the Cefpodoxime on 03/02/14, received it on 03/06/14 ( it would have arrived sooner if a snow storm didn't get in the way). My dog Joey has been on this prescription and I see results. The quality of this products is great and comes without the high cost of most pharmacies.

Comments about Putney Cefpodoxime Proxetil (Generic):

VetRXDirect did a great job of following up with our veterinarian, when his approval fax did not arrive and later, when he had forgotten to give the dosage. Also, delivery was super-fast.

Comments about Putney Cefpodoxime Proxetil (Generic):

I found the generic brand of the prescription at half the price my vet was going to charge. It was so easy - mail the prescription and it's shipped right to you. They even included a hand written note with a dog treat for my Kona Marie. This will be my first choice from now on. Thanks!

Very pleased with the service and friendly rep. who helped me.
Looking forward to doing more business. The product looked just like the major brand my dog is reacting just the same and was 1/3 the cost. Wow what a savings.

It's a product that every English Bull Owner should have on hand. It cures the Fungal they carry in the Blood Stream, and it works. ELLA is the one that has it this year.
