What is Zeniquin?

Zeniquin is a broad spectrum antibiotic used for the treatment of bacterial infections in dogs and cats, such as skin and soft-tissue infections and urinary tract infections due to organisms susceptible to marbofloxacin. The tablets are film-coated and easy for your pet to swallow. Zeniquin requires a prescription from your veterinarian and is sold by the tablet.

For:

Cats (over 12 months of age); Dogs (small and medium breeds over 8 months of age, large breeds over 12 months of age and giant breeds over 18 months of age)

Benefits:
  • Has an excellent safety profile
  • Once-a-day dosing
  • Easy-to-swallow, film-coated tablets
How Does Zeniquin Work?

Zeniquin is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic that works by inhibiting bacterial DNA replication.

Cautions:

For use in pets only. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact with eyes, immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of water for 15 minutes. In case of dermal contact, wash skin with soap and water. Consult a physician if irritation persists following ocular or dermal exposure. Individuals with a history of hypersensitivity to fluoroquinolones should avoid this product. In humans, there is a risk of user photosensitization with a few hours after exposure to quinolones. If excessive accidental exposure occurs, avoid direct sunlight. Quinolones should be used with caution in pets with known or suspected central nervous system (CNS) disorders.

Brand Name:

Zeniquin (Zoetis)

Generic Name:

marbofloxacin

What is the most important information I should know about Zeniquin?

Zeniquin is a prescription medication FDA-approved for veterinary use in dogs and cats. Zeniquin is available as 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg film-coated scored tablets. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. Do not give Zeniquin to any pet other than the pet for whom it was prescribed. Zeniquin is not for use in pets allergic to it or other fluoroquinolone antibiotic drugs. Zeniquin should not be used in cats younger than 12 months of age, or dogs during their rapid growth phase which can vary from 8 to 18 months based on the breed. Zeniquin may affect the retina of cats.

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

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has seizures or other central nervous system (CNS) disorders, or if your pet is breeding, pregnant, or lactating.

How should Zeniquin be given?

Give Zeniquin exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Give all of the medication your veterinarian has prescribed. Symptoms may start to improve before the infection is completely treated. The usual dose of Zeniquin for dogs and cats is 1.25 mg per pound given once a day, but the dosage may be increased to 2.5 mg per pound. For the treatment of skin and soft tissue infections, Zeniquin tablets should be given for 2-3 days beyond the cessation of clinical signs for a maximum of 30 days. For the treatment of urinary tract infections, Zeniquin tablets should be administered for at least 10 days. If no improvement is noted within 5 days, the diagnosis should be re-evaluated and a different course of therapy considered. If you do not understand the directions, ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you.

What are the potential side effects of Zeniquin?

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 Zeniquin?

Give the missed dose of Zeniquin 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 Zeniquin?

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose may include loss of appetite, vomiting, dehydration, excessive salivation, tremors, reddened skin, or facial swelling.

What should I avoid while giving Zeniquin to my pet?

Do not give Zeniquin to pets allergic to it or other fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Do not give Zeniquin within 2 hours of administering Carafate (sucralfate), or other antacids or foods and supplements containing iron, aluminum, calcium, magnesium, and zinc.

What other drugs will affect Zeniquin?

Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Zeniquin. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any other prescription or over-the-counter medications.

How should Zeniquin be stored?

Store Zeniquin below 86°F (30°C) away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

Where can I get more information about Zeniquin?

Your pharmacist has additional information about Zeniquin written for health professionals that you may read.

Customer Reviews
Zeniquin is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have 4 dogs...right now two of them are battling with a skin infection that only responds to this medication. Well it's working great on one..the other one where the infection started on is taking time..but Doctor said they could be on it for over 20 days.,,Hoping not the case, but they are my babies and if it's what's needed than that's what we will do.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Constipated Kitty, but fixed the problem This medication worked great for my kitty's urinary issues, the only problem was the side effect of dehydration. If your pet is prone to constipation (or has manx syndrome like my baby does) i do not recommend prolonged use of the meds. Use it until the infection clears, but as a preventative medicine it can cause major constipation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only med that has helped. About a year ago, our Australian Shepherd developed a skin infection on her stomach that looked like large ringworms. The circles were crusty and had an odor. They soon spread to her back, taking some hair with the lesions. After numerous tries with other meds, the vet did a comprehensive blood test ($604) to determine what the problem was--a mersa-type infection that is not contagious to humans. It took a month's worth of meds ($246-includes a 10% discount) to clear it up. Two months ago, she broke out with the same thing. A new vet tried another med, even though I told him Zeniquin worked. We wasted a month before he prescribed Zeniquin--Rosie is on the way to recovery. This med is very expensive, even from PetMeds, but is the only thing that works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lizzy loved Zeniquin and so did I. The stubborn temps that had hovered on the high side for almost a week fell back and stayed within the normal range after two dosages. With fever checked, she began to eat and drink and soon regained her vim and vigar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was prescribed Zeniquin for my Cat Roxie's ear infection. She had an excess of oil in her ear and the vet found it was two different types of infections. Roxie's ear has completely cleared up. Very happy with the results

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On going infection cured Bandit had been struggling with a nasal infection for over 9 months with different antibiotics with no success. My vet took a sample of the discharge and found he needed different medication they did not stock and recommended Zeniquin. I saw a positive change in 6 days and now the discharge is gone.

Q&A

My dog was given zeniquin for a cough after 3 days she is consepated. Is that one of the side effects? Thanks

Asked by: Bella
Hello Bella, That is not normally a side effect of Zeniquin. It is actually the opposite, as a common side effect is diarrhea. This could be due to another medication or a change in diet maybe? If the problem persists or gets worse, I would consult with your veterinarian. You could also try to incorporate more fiber into their diet. Hope this helps

can dog eat cottage cheese while taking zeniquin if I wait 2 hours? also dog is on prilosec do I wait 2 hours for that too?

Asked by: FA 558
Yes, I would separate Zeniquin with cottage cheese and Prilosec by at least 2 hours. As cottage cheese and Prilosec may affect the absorption of the Zeniquin.

The Vet says that he has a serious UTI ; and also he may have a torn ALC... My Beagle was taken to the Vet due to of and on limping... Any suggestions that I could give for pain while taking the Zeniquin?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, you can give tramadol to your pet along with marbofloxaxin (zeniquin) you can choose to space it out between meds since this antibiotic is very strong and can make your dog sleepy and lethargic (some pets)
