Tetracycline HCl is a bacteriostatic antibiotic used for the treatment of infections such as Lyme disease, Chlamydia, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and other bacterial infections caused by susceptible organisms.


The most common use of tetracycline HCl today is in combination with niacinamide, which may be useful in controlling a variety of sterile inflammatory skin conditions in dogs including: discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE), sterile granulomatous/pyogranulomatous syndrome, sterile nodular panniculitis, cutaneous reactive histiocytosis, cutaneous vesicular lupus erythematosus, pemphigus erythematosus, pemphigus foliaceus, lupoid onychodystrophy/onychitis, German shepherd dog metatarsal fistulae, vasculitis, arteritis of the nasal philtrum, sebaceous adenitis, and dermatomyositis.


Tetracycline should not be used in animals allergic to it or other drugs in this class. Use with caution in animals with impaired liver or kidney function. Do not use in pregnant, nursing, or growing animals since this medication may cause slowing of bone growth and discoloration of teeth. Give antacids, vitamin and mineral combinations, iron, or Pepto-Bismol at least 1 hour before or 4 hours after giving tetracycline. Use caution when given with digoxin or warfarin. Tetracycline should be given on an empty stomach.
