Description

Albon is an oral tablet prescribed to both cats and dogs, in order to treat a variety of bacterial infections. A single daily dose gives rapid and sustained therapeutic blood levels for up to 24 hours. This medication is also available in a tasty, custard-flavored liquid form, which can make administration even easier for pets and pet parents alike.

Uses

Albon (sulfadimethoxine) is effective for treating a wide range of bacterial infections commonly encountered in dogs and cats. It is indicated for use in dogs and cats with respiratory, genital and urinary tracts and soft-tissue infections. It is also indicated for treating dogs with bacterial enteritis associated with coccidiosis.

Possible Side Effects

Sulfa crystals may appear in your pet's urine. Your pet should be allowed to drink plenty of water while taking this medication. Other side effects that may occur include KCS or dry eye, anemia, fever, loss of appetite, vomiting or diarrhea, joint inflammation, kidney damage, and skin rash. Stop the medication and contact your veterinarian if any of the above symptoms occur. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

Drug & Food Interactions

Albon (sulfadimethoxine) is not effective in viral or rickettsial infections, and as with any antibacterial agent, occasional failures in therapy may occur due to resistant microorganisms. The usual precautions in sulfonamide therapy should be observed. Before giving Albon Tabs, tell your veterinarian if your pet is taking aspirin, probenecid, phenytoin, warfarin, phenylbutazone, thiazide diuretics or methotrexate.

Precautions

During the treatment period, make sure that pets maintain adequate water intake. If animals show no improvement within 2 or 3 days, reevaluate your diagnosis. Albon should not be used in dogs or cats with marked liver damage, blood dyscrasias, or in those with a history of sulfonamide hypersensitivity.

Also available in a liquid.
