Cephalosporins are prescription antibiotics. They belong to a class of broad-spectrum antibiotics called beta-lactam antibiotics. Cephalosporins are used to treat certain bacterial urinary tract infections and skin infections, including abscesses and other wounds. They may also be used to treat infections of the bones or respiratory tract. Cephalosporins are often used to treat an infection while waiting for culture results. Cephalosporins are considered very safe, with few side effects.

How does Cephalosporins work?
Cephalosporins block the bacteria from making a cell wall (the outer protective covering of the bacteria). As a result, the bacteria die.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Cefadroxil and cephalexin are two generic forms of cephalosporins. Cefa-Drops® are a brand name.

How is it given?
Cephalosporins are given by mouth. May be given with a small amount of food.

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?
Cephalosporins are absorbed well from the digestive system and distributed to many body tissues, making them effective against infections in multiple organs. They are active against many different types of bacteria. They are usually given two to three times 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 Cephalosporins.

What form(s) does it come in?
Multiple forms including capsules and liquids.
