Today we want to tell you about Enroxil for cats, which is used by veterinarians very often.

Total information

The drug is based on the active ingredient enrofloxacin. This substance belongs to the group of fluoroquinolones. Of course, people who are ignorant of veterinary medicine, it is not clear from the fact that we have given these terms. Therefore, let's understand further.

Enroxil for cats is an excellent choice even when the diagnosis is not completely clear.

The drug effectively fights a wide variety of bacterial lesions. You can list them all for a long time, but even such resistant infections as mycoplasma recede very quickly.

Enroxil for cats is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and very quickly penetrates into all organs and systems. The maximum concentration in the blood is maintained for six hours. At the same time, the therapeutic concentration remains in the blood for about a day.

Thus, the owner has the opportunity to give or inject intramuscularly the drug no more than once a day or even two. This is very convenient, as fluffy beauties extremely dislike such procedures.

The drug is excreted unchanged with urine and bile.

Meat Flavored Tablets

Enroxil for cats is available in tablet form. This is very convenient, since not every owner knows how to put injections. In the package of 10 tablets of 1.5 g each. Flavoring additives make feeding the drug easier.

The drug is administered orally at a dose of 5 mg of enrofloxacin per kg of live weight.

You can count in another way. For effective treatment you will need one tablet per three kilograms of body weight, once a day. Treatment must last at least five days.

The most correct scheme is considered to be an orientation towards the health of a fluffy patient. After the last symptoms disappear, it is necessary to continue taking the drug for two more days.

In fact, the duration of admission is individual. Treatment of chronic diseases can last longer. Tablets can be pounded and given to the animal with food, if it refuses to take them whole.

Injection solution

In which case is the 5% Enroxil used for cats? Instructions injections suggests to use for progressive infections of the respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract and urinary system. If there is no time to wait until the pills act, or the intestinal absorption capacity is impaired, it remains to use injections.

This preparation is issued in the form of light yellow transparent solution. It is packaged in 100 or 50 ml vials. Each ml of solution contains 5 g of active active ingredient.

Another 10% solution is being produced, but it is almost never used for animals. Veterinarians recommend a dosage of 1-2 ml for cats per 10 kg of animal weight.

The duration of treatment depends on the condition of the animal, but on average is 5-10 days.

However, each of them has its own characteristics, so without the recommendation of a specialist to change one drug to another is not worth it.

First of all, the owner should know that the dosage and method of use are somewhat different, each also has its own contraindications.

Instead of conclusion

Indications and recommendations for use

The reason for the use of Enroxil can be almost any infection in the dog's body.

Diseases of the intestines, liver, respiratory tract and skin (including purulent wounds) can be successfully treated with this drug.

But if the dog has diseased kidneys, Enroxil can be successfully eliminated from the body along with the bile, so do not worry about it.

Particular attention should be paid to the dosages and duration of Enroxil for dogs.

In the event that it is necessary to carry out treatment with pills, it is best to give them to the animal during the meal, while giving the opportunity to drink plenty of pure water. So the tablet will dissolve much more quickly in the intestine.

It should be remembered that the medicine is given at the rate of one tablet per 3 kg of dog weight. If you need to treat a very small dog or puppy, then you do not need to give the entire tablet at once.

The situation with the solution for injections is a little different. Usually, the instructions do not indicate in what quantities and how many times a day it is necessary to use such a solution.

And there is nothing surprising, since only the treating veterinarian can determine the dosage. Especially since the injection should be done by an experienced doctor.

After all, even a person who knows how to make shots to people will not be able to do everything as it should be for a sick dog.
