Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product I bought this a couple of weeks ago from here instead of my vet at a lower price. My pittie kept having to go every time she finished a 5 day dosage to get treated again. This way I can treat for a little longer and hopefully clear up the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for chronic colitis My 8 year old Keeshond dog suffers from chronic colitis and the Metronidazole works great to control the symptoms but of course it is not a cure. I give her 250MG twice a day for 3 days and she is back to "normal". Also, I might add that the service from 800petmeds is fantastic. I like the fact that they take care of the faxing of the prescription request and approval process.

Questions

How much do you give a bearded dragon 

Asked by: Amynblan
It depends on the reason your bearded dragon is prescribed metronidazole. Metronidazole is used (extra-label) in reptiles for the treatment of amoebae, flagellates, and ciliates, and some anaerobic respiratory infections. Animals should be treated with medications on an individual basis. Consult your veterinarian to discuss appropriate treatments for your pet. Thank you.

What is Metronidazole?

How does metronidazole work?

Please follow your veterinarian's instructions. The usual dose of metronidazole in dogs is 5-20 mg/kg of your pet's body weight, by mouth, in divided doses depending on condition of the individual pet being treated. The usual dose in cats is 3-20 mg/kg of your pet's body weight, by mouth, in divided doses depending on condition of the individual pet being treated.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving metronidazole to my pet?

Do not give this medication if your pet is allergic to metronidazole, or if your pet is pregnant.

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating, or if you plan to breed your pet.

How should metronidazole be given?

Give metronidazole exactly as it is prescribed by your veterinarian. Do not give in larger amounts or use it for longer than recommended by your veterinarian. Follow the instructions on the prescription label. If you do not understand these directions, speak to your pharmacist or veterinarian. Your veterinarian may want to perform blood tests on a regular basis to make sure the medication is not causing harmful effects.

What are the potential side effects of metronidazole?

Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome to your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of metronidazole?

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose my pet on metronidazole?

Seek emergency veterinary medical attention if you think you have given your pet too much of this medication. Symptoms of overdose may include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination, or seizures.
