What is Albon Suspension?

Albon (sulfadimethoxine) Suspension is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections in cats and dogs. It can also treat coccidial infections, which are caused by a microscopic, spore-forming, single-celled parasite that infects the intestinal tract. Albon requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
For: Cats and Dogs
 
Benefits:
Fights a wide variety of bacterial infections
Also used to treat coccidial infections
Attacks bacterial cells, not your pet’s host cells
Albon Suspension is custard-flavored for ease of administration

How it works:
Albon Suspension is a sulfonamide antibacterial that fights infections. Sulfonamides work by interfering with the ability of bacteria to reproduce.

Cautions:
It’s important for your pet to drink plenty of water. This medication should not be used in pregnant or nursing animals and should not be used in animals with liver or kidney disease.


More Information:
Brand Name
Albon (Pfizer Animal Health)
Generic Name
Sulfadimethoxine

What is the most important information I should know about Albon:
Albon is a prescription medication FDA-approved for veterinary use in dogs and cats. Albon is available as 250mg scored tablets and 5% custard-flavored suspension containing 250mg per tsp. The usual initial dose for dogs and cats is 25mg/pound once a day. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. Do not give Albon to any pet other than the pet for whom it was prescribed. Albon is not for use in animals allergic to it or other sulfa drugs.
 
What is Albon:
Albon is a sulfonamide antibacterial (sulfa drug) approved for use in the treatment of infections caused by susceptible bacteria. It is also used in the treatment of bacterial enteritis caused by coccidial infection.
 
What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Albon to my pet:
Tell your veterinarian if your pet has liver or kidney disease, bladder or kidney stones, is dehydrated, or is pregnant or lactating. Inform your veterinarian of any other medications, including vitamins and supplements, you are giving to your pet while also giving Albon.
 
How should this medication be given:
Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. The dose and duration of therapy will depend on the type of infection and the response to Albon. Give Albon by mouth. It may be given with food. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store Albon at room temperature in a tight, light-resistant container. Keep this medication away from children and pets.
 
What happens if I miss giving a dose:
Give the missed dose as soon as you remember during the same day. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the dose you missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.
 
What happens if I overdose the pet:
Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose may include side effects listed below and may also include behavioral changes.
 
What should I avoid while giving Albon to my pet:
Antacids may decrease the effectiveness of sulfa drugs such as Albon. Give antacids 2-3 hours before or after giving a dose of Albon.
 
What are the possible side effects of Albon:
Sulfa crystals may appear in your pet's urine. Your pet should be allowed to drink plenty of water while taking this medication. Other side effects that may occur include KCS or dry eye, anemia, fever, loss of appetite, vomiting or diarrhea, joint inflammation, kidney damage, and skin rash. Stop the medication and contact your veterinarian if any of the above symptoms occur. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet. If your pet experiences an allergic reaction, signs may include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, or coma. If these signs occur, contact your veterinarian immediately.
 
What other drugs will affect Albon:
Before giving Albon, tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given methotrexate, warfarin, phenylbutazone, thiazide diuretics, aspirin, probenecid or phenytoin.
 
Where can I get more information:. Your pharmacist has additional information about Albon written for health professionals that you may read

seems to be helping Shitzu..our dog had quit eating,drank some,very little,but horrible diarrhea--water for 2-3 days. never should have let go that long on a small dog but luckily able to get into vet. she's on a half diarreahea pill and this.rather than waste all the medicine, we mix in ice cream.vet said she had a parasite. didn't say we couldn't mix with food so we did. she really seemed some better by evening of the first night. vet had also given her a hydrating treatment which helped immensely. i think the albon is working.l 08/03/2014
Albon ok, how does anyone else give this to a difficult cat???? I have tried mixing in wet food with results of Tom NOT eating. even the vet was unable to use a syringe to give Tom this orally, Tom is a very feisty cat who will not even put up with a "normal" vet exam. 03/17/2014
My dogs really like the flavor. After putting it into a syringe, and giving them the dose, they lick the syringe. It is a very easy med to give. 04/29/2013
100% Effective Our 5 yr old cat Mystic was vomiting a lot, like 2 -3 times a day, she ended up vomiting no food but only a bile like smelly mess. After much on line reading about how "normal" cat vomiting is we finally took her to the vet. She was given this Albon 5% and the results were immediate! She stopped vomiting 100% on the very first day and has continued to be vomit free! I recommend anyone who has an animal that is vomiting to go to the vet and ask for this stuff! 04/19/2012
Saved our Baby Our dog was just brought into our home at 2 years of age and had stress induced coccidia...... She was in horrible shape and began giving her this medication.... we are now on day 3 and she is getting so much better so quick! Great medicine! 06/21/2010

Answer: 
The most common coccidia found in dogs do not have any effect on humans. Although there
is a risk of pets transmitting to humans with less common types, It does not warrant removing
the pet from the household except in very rare instances.
