Metronidazole (Veterinary) Medication Fact Sheet

Description of Medicine:

This medication is used to treat various infections.  Metronidazole is an antibacterial, antiparasitic, and antiprotozoal agent.  It works by disrupting the DNA in the infecting organism.

Cautions and Warnings:

This medication should not be used in animals hypersensitive to metronidazole (Flagyl) or tinidazole (Tindamax).  Metronidazole should be used cautiously in pregnancy.  Please contact your veterinarian if pregnancy is a possibility.  Metronidazole should be used with caution and may require a dosage adjustment in animals with liver dysfunction. 

How to Use this Medication:

The dosing and duration of this medication is individualized and may vary for each animal.  Follow the instructions from your pet's veterinarian as well as the following recommendations:

  • Capsules:  Should be swallowed whole if possible.  Capsules may be opened to sprinkle content over food.  Please note that if capsule is sprinkled over food, all food should be ingested to ensure proper dosage.
  • Suspension: Shake well prior to each dose and use appropriate syringe to ensure proper dosage. Dosage should be administered directly into the animal’s mouth if possible.  If needed, dosage may be squirted onto food.  Please note that if dosage is placed on food, all food should be ingested to ensure proper dosage.
  • Transdermal:  Supplied in multi-dose syringes; verify dose prior to administration.  Use a finger cot or glove to administer medication.

Possible Side Effects:

Side effects tend to be dose-related.  Metronidazole’s most severe side effect is dose-related CNS toxicity. Metronidazole may cause lethargy, CNS depression, ataxia (disordered movements), nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, neutropenia (decreased white blood cells), liver toxicity, hematuria (blood in the urine), and anorexia.

  • Q:

    Can I still give my cat this when the bottle states its expired on 12/31/14? This bottle was compounded with "tuna" flavoring. It's a little over 3 months expired. I know with human meds, it's ok to take.
    Asked on 4/12/2015 by Oliver 1996 from MN, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      VetRxDirect does not recommend administering any drug product beyond the stated expiration date. Follow up with your veterinarian if your cat is experiencing the same symptoms when the original prescription was filled to determine if compounded metronidazole suspension is still the recommended therapy.

  • Q:

    My cat is about 11.5 # and was prescribed 1/4 of a 250 mg tab twice a day. What would be the equivalent liquid to administer per dose - 1 ml ? 2 ml? Thanks
    Asked on 2/10/2014 by Makani from Hawaii

    1 answer

    • A:

      Makani,

      VetRxDirect compounds a metronidazole 50mg/mL suspension and this will require a dose of 1.25mL to give the prescribed dose of 62.5mg of metronidazole. A quantity of 75mL will last 30 days when giving 1.25mL twice daily.

      Thank you,
      VetRxDirect

  • Q:

    IS $0.89 PER BOTTLE OR PER DOSE. HOW MUCH LIQUID IS IN A BOTTLE AN WHATS THE PRICE?
    Asked on 9/6/2013 by ELOISE

    1 answer

    • A:

      Eloise,

      $0.89 is the price per mL of the 100mg/mL Chicken flavored metronidazole suspension. The total bottle price will be $0.89 times the number of mLs you order to fill your pet's prescription.

      Thank you,
