What is Albon (Tablets)?

Albon (sulfadimethoxine) 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

Albon Tablets
 
Benefits:
Available in 250mg scored tablets
Fights a wide variety of bacterial infections
Also used to treat coccidial infections
Attacks bacterial cells, not your pet’s host cells

How it works:
Albon 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/5ml. 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 if your pet 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. Signs of an allergic reaction 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.

Directions:

Albon tablets are a prescription medication used in dogs and cats for the treatment of susceptible bacterial infections.
Albon tablets are also used in the treatment of bacterial enteritis caused by coccidial infection.

I've had my 9 week old kittens on Albon 3 days with no signs of improvement yet. They are not drinking water or eating. When will it start working?

Answer: 
Mel, typically antibiotic/antibacterial medications should show signs of beginning to work by day 3 of treatment. Without knowing what condition is being treated or how severe the condition is, I would suggest you let your veterinarian know of your concern.

Answer: 
Albon is a sulfa drug used to treat bacterial infections. However, there are other antibiotic preparations that can be used to treat ear infections. These include Baytril Otic, Tresaderm, Otomax, or Mometamax as examples. Your veterinarian needs to determine what is causing the ear infection. Then he/she will determine the best antibiotic preparation to use.
