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.

  • Q:

    will this kill flat worms
    Asked on 5/18/2014 by bert

    1 answer

    • A:

      Bert,

      Flatworm describes a broad class of worms; including tapeworms. Metronidazole will likely not be effective against flatworms because this drug is primarily used to treat bacterial and protozoa-type infections. We recommend contacting your pet’s veterinarian to see what he or she recommends. The veterinarian may want to examine your pet to identify the exact type of worm your pet has to determine the appropriate therapy.

      Thank you,

      Destiny,

      Metronidazole is a human-labelled medication that has uses in veterinary pharmacy. Because it is a prescription medication, we cannot dispense it without a prescription from a licensed United States veterinarian.

  • Q:

    My dog has been on metronidazole 250mg for five days and her stools are still on the very soft side. Is this normal? She also has elevated liver enzymes and was taken off S Adenosyl thinnking that that was causing the diarrhea. Any other ideas?
    Asked on 3/8/2014 by Angel29 from Maple Hts Ohio

    1 answer

    • A:

      Angel29,

      If your dog had diarrhea prior to metronidazole therapy and the loose stools have not improved or getting worse contact your veterinarian. Common adverse effects with metronidazole treatment in dogs are lethargy, weakness, vomiting, and diarrhea. Unfortunately, without knowing your pet’s past medical history and doctor assessment I’m unable to provide specific advice regarding your pet’s infection. Follow up with your veterinarian to further discuss your dog’s drug therapy and diagnosis.

      Thank you,

      Yes, a prescription is required for metronidazole, however, you do not need to have a written prescription from your pet's veterinarian. Once you have placed an order, we can contact your pet's veterinarian directly for approval.
