Cephalexin is an oral antibiotic that is used to treat pyoderma and other bacterial skin infections in dogs and is used off label or extra-label in cats to treat pyoderma and some other types of skin infections. It is sometimes used off label or extra-label to treat urinary tract infections in cats and dogs.
Many drugs are commonly prescribed for off label use in veterinary medicine. In these instances, follow your veterinarian’s directions and cautions very carefully.
Cephalexin is available as a capsule, chewable tablet (for dogs), and as an oral suspension. In Canada, it is also available in an oral paste.
Cephalexin can be given with or without food. If your pet vomits or acts sick after receiving the medication, try giving it with a small amount of food.
This medication will take effect quickly, in about 1 to 2 hours, but visible effects may take a few days to be recognized.
