Cefpodoxime proxetil (Simplicef) is a third generation cephalosporin and is used primarily to treat skin infections in dogs- most of which are caused by Staphylococcus. It has been very useful in dogs that have bacterial skin infections that are resistant to other antibiotics. It is used once daily which makes it very convenient to administer. It is usually very well tolerated and has few side effects. I really think this is a good antibiotic for Staphylococcus infections, and most veterinarians seem to be familiar with the drug and its indications.
