Product Information

Zeniquin (marbofloxacin) is an oral antibiotic that is commonly prescribed for dogs and cats suffering from certain bacterial infections of the skin, soft tissue, and urinary tract.

What is Zeniquin? Zeniquin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is given by mouth (orally) in order to treat susceptible bacterial infections. It is commonly prescribed for certain skin, soft tissue, and urinary tract infections.

Zeniquin is formulated for: adult dogs and cats. Cats and large dogs should be over 12 months of age, small and medium dogs should be over 8 months of age, and giant breed dogs should be over 18 months of age in order to receive this medication safely as directed by your veterinarian.

What are the benefits of Zeniquin? Zeniquin is broad-spectrum so it can treat infections in multiple organs including the skin, many soft tissues, and the urinary tract. Tablets are scored so they can be easily split to medicate your pet accurately. It can be used in dogs and cats. It is usually prescribed for use once a day so dosing is easy and convenient.

How does Zeniquin work? Zeniquin is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic that works to kill susceptible bacteria by inhibiting DNA replication.

What results can I expect? Susceptible infections should begin to improve which should also result in an improvement in your pet's symptoms. Your pet should start to feel better. Some improvement should be observed within two to three days but results vary in each individual pet. Use all of the medication prescribed, even if your pet appears well. If the entire course of treatment is not given, the infection can return or worsen. Consult your veterinarian if your pet’s condition does not improve or if it worsens after beginning treatment with Zeniquin.

What Form(s) does Zeniquin come in? Zeniquin is available as an oral tablet (given by mouth). It is available in 25 mg, 50 mg, 100 mg, and 200 mg strengths.

Common Brand Name: Zeniquin (Pfizer Animal Health)

Generic Name: Marbofloxacin (Common Drug Name)

Dose and Administration: Give Zeniquin tablets by mouth (orally) as directed by your veterinarian. Zeniquin is generally prescribed for once a day use but your veterinarian will determine the exact dose and dosing frequency that is right for your pet. If you do not understand how to give this medication or if have difficulty administering it, contact your veterinarian for further instructions. Make sure you use all of the medication that is prescribed even if your pet appears well. There is a higher tendency for the infection to recur or worsen if you do not complete the entire course of treatment. Provide plenty of fresh water for your pet to drink while taking this medication. Do not give this medication within two hours of giving dairy products. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule. Do not give two doses at once.

Possible Side Effects: The most common side effects are gastrointestinal in nature and include lack of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. Tiredness has also been reported. Seizures in animals with central nervous system (CNS) disorders, depression, dizziness, nervousness, and other behavioral changes have been reported but are rare. If your pet displays any unusual symptoms while on this medication, contact your veterinarian immediately. Signs of an allergic reaction include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, cold limbs, and coma. Any of these symptoms should be reported to your veterinarian immediately.



Precautions: Do not use Zeniquin in animals who are hypersensitive (allergic) to marbofloxacin other fluoroquinolone antibiotics such as enrofloxacin (Baytril). This medication should be used with caution in animals with central nervous system (CNS) disorders, such as epilepsy because it could possibly cause seizures. It should also be used with caution in pets with liver and kidney disease. Zeniquin may cause problems in the development of bones/joints of young growing animals. It should not be used in small and medium breed dogs less than 8 months of age, large breeds less than 12 months of age or giant breeds up to 18 months of age. Do not use in cats less than 12 months of age. The safety Zeniquin in breeding animals or pregnant or lactating animals (female animals nursing their young) has not been established. At high doses, some quinolone antibiotics may cause altered vision or blindness in cats. If your cat shows any sign of vision problems, including dilated (enlarged) pupils or any change in behavior, contact your veterinarian immediately. In pets taking quinolone antibiotics, dehydration increases the risk of seizures and crystals developing in the urine so it is important that your pet has unlimited access to clean drinking water while taking this medication.

Drug and Food Interactions: Tell your veterinarian about any other medications, vitamins, or supplements your pet is taking prior to starting Zeniquin. Interactions may occur with oral cyclosporine, other antibiotics, flunixin, glyburide, methotrexate, probenecid, theophylline, warfarin, and phenytoin. Do not use within 2 hours of giving antacids, sucralfate, iron, aluminum, calcium, or dairy products since this can decrease the absorption of Zeniquin. People with hypersensitivities (allergies) to quinolone antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin or norfloxacin, should not handle the medication, since a reaction is possible just from direct contact.

Storage: Zeniquin should be stored in a tight, light-resistant, childproof container at room temperature. Keep this medication in a place that is out of reach from children and pets.
