Simplicef Product Review One of the most frustrating problems I have faced as a veterinarian of 18 plus years experience is in client compliance in treating various infections at the appropriate dosing frequency and length of time. Many commonly used veterinary antibiotics either are very large to administer, often being in large capsule form, or have very poor palatability thereby frustrating animal guardians who will then be more likely not to follow the prescribed course of antibiotics, if there is too much of a struggle in administering a prescribed medication.. When Pfizer came out with this wonderful, easy to administer ONCE daily antibiotic, the compliance rate and clinical success rate in treated dogs improved dramatically for my clients. From its coated formulation and small size, this antibiotic is much easier to administer and use by my clients. Unlike other cephalosporins, like cephalexin, that often have to be given twice or three times daily, this small caplet reaches therapeutic concentrations in the blood for prolonged periods with only once daily administration. In particular this is most useful when treating the common staph skin infections in dogs , where length of therapy is sometimes 4-6 weeks or longer. With the development and efficacy of simplicef, I have seen much better case outcomes, especially with these skin cases, as well as other soft tissue infections including those of the urinary tract and lungs. I find that giving it with a small amount of food cuts down on any small chance at digestive upset. Of course like other antibiotics administered orally to our animals, a written prescription is necessary from your veterinarian. It is slightly more expensive, however in my opinion, the extra cost is certainly worth it, given the improved compliance and clinical outcome of my cases. I therefore give this product an overall rating and efficacy of a 5 with a taste and ease of use a 5 as well. 05/04/2009
This works great, all sores gone. We had our little guy on the two week, or 20 day plan whenever the sores started. We read about someone giving their dog the Simplicef only on weekends and this kept it clean. We started Zorro on this plan and it has been 100% effective for him. When he was on the one a day 1/2 pill regiment he seemed to gain weight. Now he has lost a few pounds and is back to his "bossy" self with lots of energy. 02/03/2014
Very good product My Ali suffers from bacteria around his chin and lips because he is a Boxer and they tend to slobber. His bumps are more like acne and when ruptured by scratching they bleed and become more irritating. Simplicef, after three days he is cured. Of course if I want to avoid future breakouts I give him a pill a day. This gives me peace of mind and a happy pet. 01/20/2014
Excellent! My dog gets really dry skin, and when I say really, I mean REALLY BAD. It was getting to the point where I was giving him baths every day just so he would stop itchy. After a nice week wait to get an appointment, when the vet finally saw me, she gave my sheltie these pills. That was over a year ago. Now, when the whether is bad, which sets off the dryness/raw spots on my dog, I call in, and they give me a refill. It is the ONLY thing that I have found to work for my dog's dry skin. 08/02/2013

My dog was spayed and part of her uterus was left. It became terribly infected, she just had surgery and it was removed. She was put on Simplicef but is still having the infected discharge. Is there another medication that may work better for this issue
Since starting Simplicef, my dog has been shaking her head and scratching her ears. Can this be caused by this medication?
she is 70 # and has taken a 200mg tablet for a bacterial infection. she is also taking 350mg aspirin for fever. puppies are 4 weeks old and eating puppy chow as well as nursing
Answer:Your veterinarian is aware that your dog is lactating ? At times veterinarians have to decide
benefits versus risks. As long as your vet is monitoring the situation , chances are that all will be ok.
There is some risk with any medication, however the infection in the mother dog has to be
addressed quickly. If anything seems not right to you....trouble breathing, oversedation...then call your vet immediately
