Side Effects

There is a risk for antibiotic-associated diarrhea or colic. There is a risk for injection site discomfort, swelling, and tissue damage with intramuscular (IM) or under the skin (SQ) injections. High doses have been reported to cause altered bacterial flora resulting in large intestinal inflammation, abnormal stool, reduced appetite, weight loss, and inactivity. All antibiotics have the potential to cause an overgrowth of nonsusceptible organisms. All injectable medications have the potential to cause an immediate allergic or anaphylactic reaction. Affected animals may have a swelling, hives, changes in respiration, and display signs of agitation. This can be a severe and life threatening reaction; immediate treatment with epinephrine is often required. There is a risk for a short period of pruritus (itchiness) after IV injections. This medication can affect the circulating blood cells causing an anemia (low red blood cells), a thrombocytopenia (low platelets), or a leukopenia (low white blood cells).
