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.

QUESTION
How much do you give a bearded dragon 
ANSWERS (1)
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?

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. Metronidazole is sold per tablet and requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Treats a wide array of ailments
  • An antibiotic that effectively treats inflammatory bowel disease
  • Remedies certain diarrheal disorders
  • Treats infections caused by Giardia (intestinal parasite)
  • Also treats periodontal disease
  • Sold per tablet

How does metronidazole work?

Metronidazole is especially effective against anaerobic infections - bacteria that can live without oxygen. It's 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.

Cautions:

Antibiotic medications can cause diarrhea, which may be the sign of a new infection. If your pet has diarrhea that is watery or has blood in it, contact your veterinarian. Do not use any medication to stop the diarrhea unless instructed by your veterinarian.

Brand Name:

Flagyl (Searle)

Generic Name:

Metronidazole

What is the most important thing I should know about metronidazole?

Metronidazole is not FDA-approved for use in veterinary medicine; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to use this medication in dogs and cats. 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. The actual dose and duration of treatment depends on the specific condition being treated. Metronidazole should be given to your pet for the entire length of time prescribed by your veterinarian.

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 allergic to any medications, or if your pet has any of the following: liver disease; anemia; epilepsy; or nerve disorders. 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?

Seek emergency veterinary medical attention if your pet experiences any signs of an allergic reaction (hives; difficulty breathing; or swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat). Call your veterinarian at once if any of the following serious side effects occur: seizures; fever; chills; sores inside the mouth or on the lips; or watery or bloody diarrhea. Keep giving metronidazole and talk to your veterinarian if your pet develops any of these less serious side effects: nausea; diarrhea; dizziness; loss of balance; dry mouth; cough; sneezing; runny nose; or swollen tongue. 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.

What should I avoid while giving metronidazole to my pet?

Antibiotic medications can cause diarrhea, which may be the sign of a new infection. If your pet has diarrhea that is watery or has blood in it, call your veterinarian. Do not use any medication to stop the diarrhea unless your veterinarian tells you to do so.

What other drugs will affect metronidazole?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is using any of the following medications: cimetidine (Tagamet), phenytoin (Dilantin), Phenobarbital, or warfarin (Coumadin). There may be other drugs not listed that can affect metronidazole. Tell your veterinarian about all prescription and non-prescription (OTC) medications, including vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other veterinarians. Do not start using a new medication without telling your veterinarian.

Metronidazole Directions:

  • Metronidazole is a prescription antibiotic used in dogs and cats to treat various conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, nonspecific diarrhea disorders, infections caused by Giardia, and periodontal disease.
