    What is Zeniquin? Zeniquin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is indicated for the treatment of susceptible infections. This medication fights infections of the skin, soft tissue, and urinary tract but it is also effective against bacteria in other parts of the body. It is given orally (by mouth) and is available with a prescription written by your veterinarian.

    How does this medication work? Zeniquin is an example of a fluoroquinolone antibiotic. These antibiotics work to kill susceptible bacteria by inhibiting DNA replication.

    What results can I expect? Signs of your pets infection should begin to dissipate and your pet should start to feel better. It is possible to see some improvement within two to three days but results and the length of time it takes for the infection to resolve will vary in each individual pet. It is important for your pet to finish all of the medication that your veterinarian prescribes even if your pet appears well.

    Description

    What is Rilexine? This is a medication that is given orally(by mouth). It is an antibiotic that treats pyoderma (bacterial infection of the skin) and urinary tract infections. Tablets make it more convenient to treat your pets infection than with capsules that contain the same active ingredient.

    Formulated for: Rilexine can be given to dogs.

You can give Rilexine to your pet with or without food. The average frequency of administration is twice daily for 28 days in total. This is just a guideline and can change based on what is best for your pet so always listen to your veterinarian. Always talk to your veterinarian if you have any questions regarding the use of Rilexine.

    How does this medication work? Rilexine inhibits nucleopeptide synthesis of the bacterial wall. This results in the eventual death of susceptible bacteria. Rilexine works to kill infections commonly found in the skin (ex. pyoderma, folliculitis, and cellulitis) and urinary tract.

    What results can I expect? Once your pet takes Rilexine, his/her symptoms of infection should resolve since this medication works to kill susceptible bacteria. As with any antibiotic, it is imperative that you give your pet all prescribed medication even if he/she starts to feel better before all of the medication has been finished.
