Cephalexin

Prescription Cephalexin is antibiotic that provides safe and effective treatment of a range of infections common in cats and dogs including bacterial infections of the: skin, respiratory system, urinary tract, bones, and joints.  This medication provides broad-spectrum treatment for a range of bacteria and limits the growth of bacteria and fungus.

 

  • Broad-spectrum treatment of a range of infections
  • Treats skin, urinary, respiratory, skeletal, and soft tissue infections  
  • Available as a liquid or capsules

 

Dogs and cats are susceptible to bacterial infections of the skin, skeleton, and respiratory system. If your pet has an infection, the veterinarian may prescribe Cephalexin, a broad-spectrum antibiotic that works quickly and effectively to treat bacterial infections and reduce the presence of other harmful micro-organisms. Cephalexin is available in either liquid or capsule form for your dosing convenience.

 

What you should know about Cephalexin:

  • Talk to your pet's veterinarian before using this product.
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your pet more medication than directed and don’t skip doses.
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

 

For additional information about Cephalexin, click the “More Information” and “Package Insert” tabs above. 

 

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.

    Asked on 3/18/2015 by Gordos Mom from Phoenix, AZ, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      It would be best to contact your veterinarian and let them know that your dog is not tolerating the post surgical antibiotic treatment. Your veterinarian may be able to suggest ways to minimize stomach upset or choose to modify or extend current antibiotic therapy.

  • Q:

    Hello I have a large cat that I have care taked for 5 years now she was dumped  where I live. She has a respiratory cough and I need to know what the dosage is for a cat of 25 lbs with 250 mg capsules of Cephalixin 
    Asked on 1/8/2015 by vict from Sac CA

    1 answer

    • A:

      While the dosage of cephalexin is related to your pet’s weight, there are many factors that are considered when choosing the appropriate medication and dose. Your veterinarian will diagnose the coughing symptoms and will determine the appropriate treatment regimen for your pet.

  • Q:

    Is this the same cephalexin the Dr proscribed me for my skin infection on my big toe
    Asked on 10/29/2014 by jackie279

    1 answer

    • A:

      Cephalexin, or Keflex (brand name), is an antibiotic that is used in both human and veterinary medicine. There are currently no FDA-approved cephalexin products marketed for veterinary use in the United States. For this reason, when treating pets, the indication for use and dosage of cephalexin must be determined by an experienced, licensed, veterinarian. We recommend consulting with your pet’s veterinarian to determine the appropriate dose for your pet as this dose is generally based upon your pets indication and weight.

      Thank you,

    Asked on 4/3/2014 by dusty from TX, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Dusty,

      Cephalexin is a prescription medication and will require approval from the veterinarian to dispense. It will be up to your dog's veterinarian whether or not they need to see the dog again each time they prescribe the medication or if they are comfortable allowing refills on a prescription.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    do I need a prescription to buy cephalexin and if I do how do I send it?
    Asked on 1/2/2014 by Kay123 from Mississippi

    1 answer

    • A:

      Kay,

      Cephalexin does require a prescription. We can accept prescriptions in a couple of different ways. If your pet's veterinarian has issued you a written prescription, we do need the original and that can be mailed to us. If the clinic is willing to fax a prescription, we can accept faxed prescriptions directly from clinics, and we would be happy to request the prescription from the clinic once an order has been placed.

      Thank you,
      VetRxDirect

    Asked on 12/4/2013 by vanessa

    • A:

      Vanessa,

      Cephalexin is sold per capsule, so that you can order the quantity you need.  Once an order is placed, the quantity that you request will be sent to the veterinarian for approval.

      Thank you,
