Antibiotics for Dogs and Cats

Albon (sulfadimethoxine) is an antibiotic for dogs and cats that is used to treat a wide variety of infections. Albon can be used to treat respiratory and urinary tract infections.

Albon, available in oral tablets and liquid suspension, treats an array of bacterial infections. This antibiotic combats a number of respiratory tract, urinary tract, genital, intestinal, and soft tissue infections. It also treats coccidiosis, an infection caused by microscopic parasites that infest the intestinal tract.

Benefits of Albon:

  • Treats many types of bacterial infections in cats and dogs
  • Works on wound infections and abscesses, pneumonia, bronchitis, tonsillitis, cystitis, pharyngitis, nephritis, metritis, pyometra, pustular dermatitis, anal gland infections, bacterial enteritis, salmonellosis, and other infections
  • Treats protozoal coccidial infections
  • Works by directly attacking bacterial cells, not your pet's host cells
  • Easily administered liquid suspension and oral tablets
  • Rapidly absorbed, long-lasting active ingredient
  • Prescription-strength treatment

Albon is indicated for use in cats and dog. It is occasionally prescribed for other animals. Not for human use. Do not use in any animal that does not have a prescription.

Children should not be permitted to administer this antibiotic.

Read all manufacturer-provided directions and precautionary statements prior to use.

Complete the prescribed regimen, even if symptoms seem to be gone; symptoms may clear up before infections are fully eliminated.

The following directions represent a standard administration. Use exactly as prescribed.

Albon Oral Suspension Directions:

  1. Give 1 tsp. (5 mL) per every 10 lbs. of body weight as an initial dose.
  2. Give ½ tsp. (2.5 mL) per every 10 lbs. of body weight once every 24 hours thereafter.
  3. Administer with or without food.
  4. Allow unrestricted access to water during treatment and encourage drinking to prevent crystalline formations in your pet's urine.

Sulfadimethoxine, the active ingredient in Albon, is an effective low-dose antibiotic that treats a variety of infections. It stops bacterial production of folic acid and proteins, thereby preventing bacterial reproduction. Some of the bacteria it works against include salmonella, staphylococci, streptococci, proteus, klebsiella, shigella, and escherichia. It also eliminates coccidial infections. Albon treats many enteric, genitourinary, respiratory tract, urinary tract, and soft tissue infections.

Albon requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

Albon (sulfadimethoxine)

Albon oral suspension contains 250 mg sulfadimethoxine per tsp. (5 mL) in a custard-flavored carrier.

Albon oral tablets are available in 125 mg, 250 mg, and 500 mg sulfadimethoxine doses.

Warnings:

Keep this product out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

Albon is intended for animal use only. Administer only to animals that have a prescription.

Use as directed by your veterinarian.

Animals require plenty of water during a regimen of Albon administration.

CAUTION: Not for use in animals with a hypersensitivity to this or other sulfa drugs.

Not for pregnant or nursing animals, or those with kidney or liver disease.

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has bladder or kidney stones.

Side effects may include sulfa crystals in the urine (best prevented by adequate water intake), fever, dry eyes, anemia, diarrhea, vomiting, inflammation of the joints, diminished appetite, rash, kidney damage, and others. Discontinue administration and contact your veterinarian right away if you notice any of these adverse reactions.

Signs of an overdose may include the above-named side effects and behavioral changes. Seek immediate veterinary attention.

Sulfadimethoxine does not treat viral or rickettsial infections. It sometimes proves ineffective against resistant strains of bacteria.

If your pet shows no sign of improvement within 3 days, contact your veterinarian for reconsideration of diagnosis and treatment.

Consult your veterinarian before administering any other medication or supplement while your pet is being treated with Albon.

Antacids can interfere with the absorption of sulfa drugs like Albon. Do not administer any antacids within 3 hour of an Albon dose.
