    What is Zeniquin?

    Zeniquin is a synthetic broad-spectrum antibacterial. It’s indicated for the treatment of infections associated with bacteria susceptible to marbofloxacin. Zeniquin requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold by the tablet.
    For:
    Cats (over 12 months of age)
    Dogs (small and medium breeds over 8 months of age, large breeds over 12 months of age and giant breeds over 18 months of age)

    How it works:
    Zeniquin is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic that works by inhibiting bacterial DNA replication.

    Cautions:
    Tell your veterinarian if your pet has seizures or other central nervous system disorders, or if your pet is breeding, pregnant, or lactating. Do not give Zeniquin to pets that may be allergic to it or other fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Do not give Zeniquin within two hours of administering Carafate (sucralfate), antacids, or foods and vitamin/mineral products containing iron, aluminum, calcium, magnesium, or zinc.

    What is the most important information I should know about Zeniquin: Zeniquin is a prescription medication FDA-approved for veterinary use in dogs and cats. Zeniquin is available as 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg film-coated scored tablets. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. Do not give Zeniquin to any pet other than the pet for whom it was prescribed. Zeniquin is not for use in animals allergic to it or other fluoroquinolone antibiotic drugs. Zeniquin should not be used in cats younger than 12 months of age or dogs during their rapid growth phase which can vary from 8 to 18 months based on the breed. Zeniquin may affect the retina of cats.

    What is Zeniquin: Zeniquin is a broad spectrum oral fluoroquinolone antibiotic used for the treatment of bacterial infections such as skin and soft-tissue infections and urinary tract infections due to susceptible organisms. This medication may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

    What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Zeniquin to my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has seizures or other central nervous system (CNS) disorders, or if your pet is breeding, pregnant, or lactating.

    How should this medication be given: Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Give all of the medication your veterinarian has prescribed. Symptoms may start to improve before the infection is completely treated. The usual dose of Zeniquin for dogs and cats is 1.25mg per pound given once a day, but the dosage may be increased to 2.5mg per pound. Treatment should continue for a maximum of 30 days; however, if there is no improvement after 5 days, your pet should be reevaluated. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store Zeniquin at room temperature away from moisture and heat. 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. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose 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 loss of appetite, vomiting, dehydration, excessive salivation, tremors, reddened skin, or facial swelling.

    What should I avoid while giving Zeniquin to my pet: Do not give Zeniquin to animals allergic to it or other fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Do not give Zeniquin within 2 hours of administering Carafate (sucralfate), or other antacids or foods and supplements containing iron, aluminum, calcium, magnesium, and zinc.

    What are the possible side effects of Zeniquin: Stop giving the medication and seek emergency veterinary medical attention if your pet experiences an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; or hives). Other less serious side effects may also occur. Continue to give the medication and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, or drowsiness. Side effects other than those listed may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the pet.

    What other drugs will affect Zeniquin: Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Zeniquin. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any other prescription or over-the-counter medications.

    Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has additional information about Zeniquin written for health professionals that you may read.

    We have 4 dogs...right now two of them are battling with a skin infection that only responds to this medication. Well it's working great on one..the other one where the infection started on is taking time..but Doctor said they could be on it for over 20 days.,,Hoping not the case, but they are my babies and if it's what's needed than that's what we will do. 01/03/2015
    Constipated Kitty, but fixed the problem This medication worked great for my kitty's urinary issues, the only problem was the side effect of dehydration. If your pet is prone to constipation (or has manx syndrome like my baby does) i do not recommend prolonged use of the meds. Use it until the infection clears, but as a preventative medicine it can cause major constipation. 08/28/2014
    The only med that has helped. About a year ago, our Australian Shepherd developed a skin infection on her stomach that looked like large ringworms. The circles were crusty and had an odor. They soon spread to her back, taking some hair with the lesions. After numerous tries with other meds, the vet did a comprehensive blood test ($604) to determine what the problem was--a mersa-type infection that is not contagious to humans. It took a month's worth of meds ($246-includes a 10% discount) to clear it up. Two months ago, she broke out with the same thing. A new vet tried another med, even though I told him Zeniquin worked. We wasted a month before he prescribed Zeniquin--Rosie is on the way to recovery. This med is very expensive, even from PetMeds, but is the only thing that works. 07/25/2013
    Lizzy loved Zeniquin and so did I. The stubborn temps that had hovered on the high side for almost a week fell back and stayed within the normal range after two dosages. With fever checked, she began to eat and drink and soon regained her vim and vigar. 04/16/2013
    I was prescribed Zeniquin for my Cat Roxie's ear infection. She had an excess of oil in her ear and the vet found it was two different types of infections. Roxie's ear has completely cleared up. Very happy with the results 03/07/2013

    Answer: 
    Yes, you can give tramadol to your pet along with marbofloxaxin (zeniquin)

    you can choose to space it out between meds since this antibiotic is very strong and can make your dog sleepy and lethargic (some pets)
