Doxycycline is the prescription antibiotic, doxycycline. It is a broad-spectrum antibiotic related to other tetracyclines commonly used for the treatment of susceptible bacterial infections. Doxycycline is commonly used to treat leptospirosis, toxoplasmosis, mycoplasma, psittacosis, and many diseases carried by ticks including Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, as well as salmon poisoning.

How does Doxycycline work?
It works by preventing bacteria from producing proteins that are essential to the growth and reproduction of the bacteria. It therefore stops the spread of infection, allowing the body's immune system to kill the existing bacteria.

How is it given?
Doxycycline is given by mouth. 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?
Doxycycline is well absorbed from the intestinal tract and is carried by the blood stream to many tissues of the body. It will prevent bacteria from reproducing, which will eventually eliminate them from the body. To be effective, Doxycycline must be given 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 Doxycycline.

What form(s) does it come in?
