What is Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim Tablets Double Strength?

Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim (SMZ/TMP) Tablets Double Strength is a sulfonamide combination used to treat respiratory, urinary tract, skin, or gastrointestinal infections, and other conditions. Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim Tablets Double Strength require a prescription from your veterinarian, and are sold per tablet.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:
  • Effective against a wide array of bacterial infections in dogs and cats

How it Works:

Sulfamethoxazole is a sulfonamide antibiotic that limits the growth of bacteria. Sulfonamides inhibit synthesis of folic acid, important to bacterial DNA synthesis. Trimethoprim works by starving the bacteria of nucleotides necessary for DNA replication.
