What is SMZ-TMP DS?
SMZ-TMP (trimethoprim/sulfa) in double strength (DS) form is an antibiotic used to treat susceptible bacterial infections in multiple species. It can also be used to treat certain infections with protozoa.

Who is it for?
SMZ-TMP is for dogs and cats, plus other species as prescribed by a veterinarian.

What are the benefits?

* Broad-spectrum antibiotic treats a range of bacterial and protozoal infections
* Used for respiratory, urinary tract, skin or gastrointestinal infections and other conditions
* Trimethoprim works with sulfamethoxazole for better effectiveness

SMZ-TMP is an antibiotic used to treat susceptible bacterial and protozoal infections. Trimethoprim makes sulfamethoxazole more effective. It is available in double strength tablets.

How does SMZ-TMP work?
This medication works by preventing the production of folic acid in bacteria. Without folic acid, bacteria cannot make essential proteins and will eventually die.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
SMZ-TMP DS is the generic equivalent of Bactrim and Septra

How is it given?
SMZ-TMP is given orally, commonly with food. Encourage your pet to drink water when taking SMZ-TMP to prevent crystals from forming in the urine.

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?
SMZ-TMP is absorbed well from the digestive system and is distributed to many body tissues, making it effective against infections in multiple organs. It is active against many different types of bacteria. It is usually given once or twice a day for a number of days. 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 SMZ-TMP.

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