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 Suspension requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

Note: Albon Tablets are also available in 250mg scored tablets.

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 does Albon Suspension work?

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

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 should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Albon Suspension to my pet?

How should Albon Suspenion 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 Suspension 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.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Albon Suspenion?

What happens if I overdose my pet on Albon Suspenion?

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 Suspension 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.

Customer Reviews
Albon Suspension is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from How to give it to a feisty cat Swaddle the cat tightly, legs disabled. Holding him in your left arm like a baby, simply shoot it in by degrees on the left or right side of the mouth. Your cat will happily swallow.it. It is really that simple. A lot of vets know nothing about this. I had a big Maine Coon cat, and he was a big.baby once he settled down. Like a "thunder shirt", swaddling actually comforts cats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the trick We had two lambs with bad diarrhea from coccidia, the medicated feed was not helping. Our vet prescribe Albon and both are now recovered and out in the field.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great It is significantly cheaper to buy this from pet meds than to get it from my vet. One of our pups had a parasite so the Dr. said all the dogs (7) had to take this and it cost about $400 for around 2 pints. All the dogs lick it from the syringe and the dogs that freak out around the syringe I just put it in a small dipping bowl and they lick it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
