Ciprofloxacin (Generic) Antibiotic Tablets for Pets

Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic used to kill bacteria and is often used as an alternative to enrofloxacin when needing a larger dosage or intravenous administration. When giving ciprofloxacin orally, administer the medication on an empty stomach. Ciprofloxacin should also be given at least 2 hours apart from any antacids or dairy products because the drug can bind to those products and make the medication less effective.

This medication can potentially cause cartilage changes in young animals and should not be given to small and medium breed dogs aging from 2 to 8 months old. Although side effects are generally uncommon, vomiting and anorexia (loss of appetite) can occur. 

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.

      A:

      Dosing ciprofloxacin is based on the weight of your pet, as well as the infection being treated. Your veterinarian will determine what dose is appropriate for your pet.

  • Q:

    I need an antibiotic for an older female cat with a sinus and eye infection. Please give me advice on which product I should buy for her?

    • A:

      Ciprofloxacin tablets and ciprofloxacin ophthalmic solution both require a prescription from a veterinarian. Your veterinarian will need to evaluate your cat and determine a proper diagnosis to decide if ciprofloxacin is the proper therapy. The correct diagnosis accompanied by the proper drug, dose and duration will ensure the best possible outcome for your pet.

    Is this the same  ciprofloxacin as given for humans

    • A:

      Liberty,

      Ciprofloxacin is a human medication that has uses in veterinary pharmacy. We, however, only fill for veterinary use and require a prescription from a licensed United States veterinarian.
