What is Tetracycline HCl?
Tetracycline is an oral antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections.

Who is it for?
Tetracycline is commonly used for dogs, cats, ferrets, and other small animals.

What are the benefits?

* Broad-spectrum antibiotic treats bacterial infections
* In dogs, also treats leptospirosis, toxoplasmosis, certain tick-borne diseases, and some immune disorders
* Used safely in multiple species, including dogs, cats, ferrets and other small animals

Tetracycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic commonly used for the treatment of bacterial infections. In dogs, it is also used to treat leptospirosis, toxoplasmosis, and many diseases carried by ticks including Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and salmon poisoning. In cats, it is also used for the treatment of ehrlichiosis.

How does Tetracycline work?
It prevents bacteria from producing proteins that are essential to their growth and reproduction. It therefore stops the spread of infection, allowing the body's immune system to kill the bacteria.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
This medication is a generic tetracycline.

How is it given?
If possible, give without food. However, it may be given with food to decrease side effects. If using a tablet or pill form, you must make sure your pet swallows some water after taking the medication, or the medication may cause damage to the esophagus. Do not use milk. Cats should have at least a teaspoon of water. Try offering your cat water flavored with tuna water or other liquid your cat likes. For small mammals, try fruit juices.

Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Use all of the medication prescribed, even if your pet appears well. If the entire course of treatment is not given, the infection may recur or worsen.

What results can I expect?
Tetracycline is well absorbed from the intestinal tract and is carried by the bloodstream to many tissues of the body. It will prevent bacteria from reproducing, which will eventually eliminate them from the body. To be effective, Tetracycline must be given several times a day for many days in a row. If doses are missed or the entire treatment regimen is not completed, the infection could recur or worsen. Consult your veterinarian if the animal's condition does not improve or worsens after beginning treatment with tetracycline.

What form(s) does it come in?
This medication comes in capsule form.
