Metronidazole is commonly used as an anti-diarrheal medication that treat inflammation of the large intestine. It is also effective against certain protozoal and bacterial infections such as Giardia, Trichomonas and Balantidium coli. It is effective against only anaerobic pathogens, but is safe to use in conjunction with many other antibiotics for mixed infections.

Metronidazole is able to treat central nervous system infections that most other drugs cannot treat by penetrating the blood-brain barrier. It is also particularly effective against infections of the bone and teeth.

Give this medication with food, as this will increase absorption.

How It Works

Most healthy parts of your pet’s body require good circulation and oxygen to thrive. Abscesses and damaged tissue, however, typically has poor oxygen circulation. Only certain pathogens that can survive without oxygen can thrive in these areas. Metronidazole inhibits certain repair enzymes in cells that exist in these unoxygenated (or anaerobic) environments.

Storage Information
