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:My dog is 9 yrs old and takes Phenobarbital to prevent breakthrough seizures. Will this interact with Phenobarbital? My vet prescribed this but knows about the phenobarb/seizures so I am just curious how to proceed.
A:Zeniquin is the brand name for marbofloxacin. Marbofloxacin is a prescription veterinary fluoroquinolone antibiotic used in the treatment of a variety of bacterial infections. There is not a well documented drug-drug interaction between Zeniquin (marbofloxacin) and phenobarbital. It is recommended that you contact your veterinarian with any concerns regarding the health of your dog.
Q:what kind of infections is it used for
Q:Can I dissolve the Zeniquin in a small amount of water and administer via syringe directly in my cat's mouth? She is NOT a good pill taker.
A:Zeniquin (marbofloxacin) tablets can be split or crushed and mixed with food or water prior to administering to your pet. It is important to mix the medication with water or food right before administering to ensure the desired potency of the medication. Food containing magnesium, aluminum, or calcium limit the absorption of this drug so separate the dosing of these products by at least 2 hours. If your pet doesn’t tolerate the crushed tablet it may be due to the bitterness of the drug. Dosing and duration of therapy will vary depending on the type and severity of infection being treated. Please contact your veterinarian for further guidance.
