The usual dose of Orbax Oral Suspension for dogs is 1.1-3.4 mg/lb daily and 3.4 mg/lb for cats daily. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. Do not give Orbax to any pet other than the pet for whom it was prescribed. Give all of the medication your veterinarian has prescribed. Symptoms may start to improve before the infection is completely treated. Give Orbax on an empty stomach, 1 hour before or 2 hours after food. Allow plenty of water for your pet to drink. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store Orbax at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

What are the potential side effects of Orbax?

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 your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Orbax?

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 my pet on Orbax?

What should I avoid while giving Orbax to my pet?
