Description

Doxycycline Hyclate is an antibiotic prescribed to treat a variety of infections including Lyme disease, rocky mountain spotted fever, chlamydia and bacterial infections. It might also help with urinary tract, respiratory tract and wound infections. This medication comes in an oral capsule form. Customers may receive this drug under the name Doxirobe.

Uses

Doxycycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic used to treat many diseases carried by ticks. Doxycycline is used to treat infections such as ehrlichiosis, Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, salmon poisoning, toxoplasmosis, and leptospirosis.

Possible Side Effects

The most commonly reported symptoms have included nausea and diarrhea, which are minor. Some pets may also suffer from loss of appetite, hair loss, lesions, mental confusion, and jaundice. If you observe more severe reactions like facial hives, swelling of the lips or tongue and difficulty breathing, immediately discontinue use and contact your veterinarian, as these may be signs of an allergic reaction.

Drug & Food Interactions

Precautions

Do not give Doxycycline to pregnant or nursing pets. Do not give multivitamins, calcium supplements, antacids, or laxatives within 2 hours before or after giving this medication, as these products can reduce the effectiveness of Doxycycline. Doxycycline may make a pet's skin more sensitive to sunlight and sunburn may occur. Throw away any unused medication when it expires or when it is no longer needed. Expired Doxycycline can cause a dangerous syndrome that can result in damage to the kidneys. 

This drug is FDA-approved for human use. However, it is common practice for veterinarians to prescribe such drugs for use in dogs and cats.

    Lifetime medication

    By on

    My dog has SLO(systemic lupiod onchodystrophy). This medication is keeping her in remission. I was getting it at a local pharmacy for $36 a month until Goodrx stopped covering pet meds. Without the prescription plan it was over $200! I am glad someone mentioned to try Chewy. I can continue her medications and not worry about how I will pay for them. The capsuls are easy to pop open and mix into her food. No hassle of trying to get her to take them!

    A necessary purchase.

    By on

    This was a necessary purchase in order to treat lyme disease in my fur buddy. The purchase was easy, and the price was exceptional. The drug seems to be killing the bacteria associated with Lyme Disease. Thank you Chewy!

    Hard to administer

    By on

    I'm a pro at administering pills to dogs and these tabs are difficult to administer. They are small and stick to my hands, especially if they get wet. I'm considering switching to the capsules.

    Doxycycline

    By on

    Our dog was accustomed to the tablets and these capsules are a little tricky to administer as I had been hiding it in peanut butter
