Cefa-Drops (cefadroxil) is a broad spectrum antibiotic used to treat infections of the skin, urinary tract, respiratory tract and bones and joints caused by susceptible bacteria. CEFA-DROPS (cefadroxil) are indicated for the treatment of the following conditions:

Dogs:

Genitourinary tract infections (cystitis) caused by susceptible strains of Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis and Staphylococcus aureus. Skin and soft tissue infections including cellulitis, pyoderma, dermatitis, wound infections and abscesses caused by susceptible strains of Staphylococcus aureus.

Cats:

Skin and soft tissue infections including abscesses, wound infections, cellulitis and dermatitis caused by susceptible strains of Pasteurella multocida, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Streptococcus spp.

STORAGE:

Store at 20 - 25°C (68 - 77°F), excursions permitted between 15 - 30°C (59 - 86°F).

WARNINGS:

For use in dogs and cats only. Not to be used in animals which are raised for food production. Safety for use in pregnant female dogs and cats or in breeding males has not been determined

Tap bottle lightly to loosen powder. For 15 mL bottle, add 10.4 mL of water in two portions. For 50 mL bottle, add 34 mL of water in two portions. Shake well after each addition. After mixing, store in refrigerator. Shake well before use. Discard unused portion after 14 days. Droppers supplied with CEFA-DROPS are calibrated in mL increments. When mixed as directed, each mL contains cefadroxil monohydrate equivalent to 50 mg cefadroxil.

Dogs:

CEFA-DROPS, 50 mg, should be administered orally at a dosage of 10 mg/lb of body weight twice daily. Dogs with skin or soft tissue infections should be treated for a minimum of three days. Genitourinary tract infections should be treated for a minimum of seven days with cefadroxil. Maximum duration of therapy should not exceed 30 days.

Cats:

CEFA-DROPS, 50 mg, should be administered orally at a dosage of 10 mg/lb of body weight once daily. Maximum duration of therapy should not exceed 21 days. In both species, drug treatment should continue for at least 48 hours after the animal is afebrile or asymptomatic. If no response is observed after three days of treatment, therapy should be discontinued and the case should be re-evaluated.

Cautions

Do not use in animals hypersensitive (allergic) to them. Do not use in animals hypersensitive to penicillins, as they may react to both. Although no fetal abnormalities from Cephalosporin use have been documented, do not use in pregnant or lactating animals (female animals nursing their young) if possible, since Cephalosporins cross to the fetuses and pass in the milk. Use with caution in animals with kidney disease. This medication should only be given to the pet for which it was prescribed.

Possible Side Effects

Side effects are rare. May see lack of appetite, vomiting, or diarrhea. Dogs: May also see drooling, rapid breathing, rashes, and excitability. Cats: May also see rashes or fever (temperature greater than 103°F).
