What is Metronidazole Compounded?

Metronidazole is an antibiotic and antiprotozoal medication used to treat various conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, nonspecific diarrheal disorders, infections caused by Giardia (a cause of diarrhea), and periodontal disease. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Metronidazole Compounded requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

How it Works:

Metronidazole is especially effective against anaerobic infections - bacteria that can live without oxygen. Its able to penetrate bone, making it especially useful in oral/dental infections. In addition, it has anti-inflammatory properties in the large intestine and is an effective anti-diarrhea medication for certain diseases.

Compounded Metronidazole

My cat is currently on 25 mg of Metronidazole 2 times a day. The Metronidazole 50mg 100 capsules. Is it capsules or tablets. Can we split te pill in half? Thanks Shannon
Asked by: Anonymous
We compound Metronidazole in 25mg chewtabs and in 25mg capsules to ensure your pet will get an accurate dose.

How large are the pills (100mg chewtab, specifically)?  Are they able to be split without crumbling?  (Yes, I know that 50mg are also available, but it's a far better value to purchase the 100mg, and the dose will be close enough to exact to be acceptable
