Azithromycin is a semi-synthetic macrolide antibiotic derived from erythromycin. It is most commonly used in veterinary medicine to treat certain bacterial infections. Azithromycin is a more popular choice than erythromycin in the treatment of dogs and cats because it has a longer half-life and is better absorbed by both species.

Conditions Treated With Azithromycin

Azithromycin is used by veterinarians to treat a wide range of bacterial infections in dogs and cats including streptococci, staphylococci, bartonella henselae, some species of Chlamydia, haemophilus spp, mycoplasma spp, borrelia burgdorferi and others.

Additional Veterinary Uses for Azithromycin

Azithromycin is a popular treatment option in veterinary medicine for many types of infections including dermatological infections, urogenital infections, respiratory tract infections and otitis media.

Possible Side Effects of Azithromycin

The most common potential side effects associated with azithromycin include gastrointestinal problems like abdominal discomfort, vomiting and diarrhea. Angioedema and jaundice can also result from taking azithromycin, although the chances are rare. More serious potential side effects can include cardiac arrhythmia, ventricular tachycardia and issues with renal function.
