Product Information

Resolution of your pet’s infection is right around the corner when Cephalexin is used as prescribed by your veterinarian.

Cephalexin is: an oral antibiotic used to treat susceptible bacterial infections of the skin, urinary tract, respiratory tract, bones, joints, and other body systems.

What are the benefits?

    1.Effective against a variety of bacterial infections;2.Can treat infections that are present in multiple body systems including the skin, urinary tract, and bones;3.Can be given easily at home and available at an affordable price.

    What outcomes can be expected?

    When Cephalexin is given, it absorbs through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and is delivered to various organs where susceptible infection is present. Once Cephalexin starts to work, your pet’s symptoms should improve. Always finish the entire course of antibiotics or your pet’s infection could return or worsen.

    Who is it for: dogs and cats.

    How is it given?

    1.Cephalexin is given by mouth with food. Always follow the specific directions given to you by your veterinarian.

    2.The entire course of medication should always be finished even if your pet’s symptoms resolve sooner or infection can return or get worse.

    3.Speak with your veterinarian if you do not understand how to give Cephalexin correctly.

    How does it work? Cell wall growth is halted in susceptible bacteria when Cephalexin is given. This causes death of the bacteria and helps to resolve infection.

    Cephalexin is available as: a capsule and as a liquid suspension.
