Drug & Food Interactions
Discuss medications and supplements your pet is taking with your vet as interactions are possible with Simplicef. Aminoglycosides (gentamicin, neomycin), amphotericin B, anticoagulants (blood thinners, such as heparin or warfarin), and probenicid may interact with Simplicef. Other interactions may occur.
If your pet is allergic to cephalosporins or penicillins, do not give Simplicef. Simplicef should not be given to pregnant or lactating animals because it passes through the milk. Pets with seizure disorders, epilepsy, or kidney disease should be given Simplicef cautiously and only as directed. Simplicef may cause a false-positive glucose test result with certain brands of urine test strips.
