Metronidazole (Generic of Flagyl) Tablets for Pets

Metronidazole is used to treat Giardia infections in dogs and cats. Giardia is a parasite that lives in the small intestine and can cause diarrhea. The organism can be found in contaminated soil, food, and water. Metronidazole can also be used to treat other parasites or anaerobic infections.

Adverse effects reported in dogs

  • lack of energy

  • weakness

  • liver toxicity

  • nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

  • neurologic disorders (seen with high doses or chronic therapy)

Adverse effects reported in cats

  • vomiting

  • lack of appetite

  • liver toxicity

Report any neurological side effects to your pet's veterinarian.

It is important to finish the treatment course set by your pet's veterinarian. Your pet may appear better but may require continuing treatment - always give all the doses prescribed by the veterinarian. If you miss giving your pet a dose and it is close to the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your normal routine.

*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.
