Doxycycline dosage for dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline dosage for dogs


Avatar n tn The vet prescribed doxycycline 100 mg twice a day for 3 weeks. My dog seems fine without any obvious symptoms. Can we just give him the doxycycline 100mg once a day instead because the medication may cause nausea/vomiting. Also after 3 weeks medication, how do you he is treated ? Any advice !
Avatar f tn again I don't know for sure. They may have additives or sweeteners or something which are not good for dogs (Xylitol, for example is toxic for dogs) I don't know obviously, if the shakes have stuff like this in them. Hopefully someone else will post who knows. Again you could ask the vet about this. Have you tried tempting Cookie with a little boiled chicken? Or a little steamed fish? You are right you need to jump-start her appetite if possible.
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Avatar n tn (He was tested in July 2007 and this was negative.) He is now on doxycycline 100mg 2 in am, 2 at pm. Still not active and acts stiff and it is hard for him to get up and walk. He was fine until we started the prednisone.

Avatar n tn vet they did some tests and it wasnt a tick disease so they ruled it thrombocytopenia so they started him on prednisone and he came home and a few days later he was acting normal again and his platelet count went up then a few days ago they lowered the dosage and he got sick again and he could hardly walk, they checked for tumors and there wasnt any and they cant give us an answer of what it could be could anybody please help in any way!!!
Avatar n tn 1. Can I give the dog vicodin for pain mixed in with food and what dosage? 2. Will drinking as much water and cranberry juice I can give her help? 3. I have Saline IV Bags, can I supplement her water with an IV drip of saline. 4. I also have Primaxin IV for my dads Pseudomonas and was wondering if that would help, I know cancer is not treatable but it cant make things any worse. 5. Lasix Help anything? 6.
Avatar n tn But to be safe, he had his nurse give me an injection of 500mg Rocephin (four times the recommended dosage!) and a prescription for 20 100mg Doxycycline capsules. They then called to tell me that they had contaminated my labs, and because I'm on medication, I cannot be retested at this time, so I will never know what I actually had/have! (I'll also never be able to go back there cuz I said some pretty ugly things to them then!
Avatar m tn This is fascinating to me, as Infectious Disease doctors will not treat a Lyme patient with doxycycline for more than a month. They say long term antibiotics are dangerous and risky. The other interesting thing on the CDC website is where they say: "Coxiella burnetii has the ability to persist for long periods of time in the host after infection.
Avatar f tn To my knowledge they haven't tested for any UTI's but at the moment I have started her on a course of Doxycycline which I'm not sure if this will help. Is the urea level I posted not the BUN or should I be requesting something else? I have as of today started to decrease her Tramadol and hopefully soon she will be off it all together. Is there anything else I should be asking the vet to do...
Avatar f tn Personally, if my dog was ill or miserable enough that steroids were needed 'long term', I would seriously have to consider just putting them to sleep. As far as the dosages, when first prescribed for my terminal dogs, even then I only gave them 1/2 of the dosage, which minimized any possible reactions, and allowed for a longer tampering off period. Sorry for the rant, I get passionate.

(recipes here, please search for the best,mod=0&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=recipes+for+your+dog+and+you+free) Then rinse the pets fur well.
Avatar m tn You could try giving her a little pedialyte, which is just good in general for diarrhea. I'm not sure of the dosage for a toy poodle though--I would guess just 2 or 3 ml... But that's just a guess. I would google that before giving her any... We feed a high quality carb-free diet (Flint River Ranch Fish and Chips kibble mixed with Back To Basics organ meat kibble). I don't know if it helps dogs with seizures at all, but carb-free diets are recommended for children with epilepsy.

Avatar f tn ) If there's Lyme for dogs, I'd imagine that humans can get it also. Getting an area that might depend on tourists for income to 'admit' to having a serious illness is problematic. Their vector agency isn't going to be as vigorous as, say, in CT.
Avatar n tn I went to the Dr that day and he diagnosed me with Blepharitis and prescribed Tobramycin/Dexamethasone eye drops ($48 for a very, very small bottle which I was told to throw away after my 3 day dosage) for 3 days only. He also advised me to use Cortizone 10. After 3 days my eyes cleared up and I was able to wear make-up again. However, it's returned on several occasions.
Avatar f tn I have 10 mg Prednisone tabs with me but the directions are to take 40 mg for angioedema and gradually decrease dosage. I know that if I take this dosage I will be up all night but am really uncertain about how much I should take. Using Aveeno to sooth the welts with minimal effect. I empathize with anyone going through this experience. Any suggestions appreciated. Am thinking of thinking an immunologist since the allergist was absolutely no health.
1545464 tn?1376707758 Spoke with my RE this morning which he answered a lot of questions regarding our 3rd failed cycle. Going for the more agressing and stronger dosage of medication. My RE mentioned that my prenatal vitamins have fish oil in them. I have heard something in the past about Fish Oil and pregnancy. Anyways like you ladies we are looking forward to bringing our BABY/BABIES home for 2012!!!
299260 tn?1304219705 I also have to start taking our doxycycline today (antibiotic). We only have to take that for seven days. The mock/trial tranfer is it. It's just like an IUI! I had mine last Friday. But, I cramped a little afterwards this time. It was gone by the next morning. The 15th is also a big day for us. We have an appt. to go over mixing our follistim and repronex at 1:00 and that evening we are to start those meds as long as AF shows when she is supposed to !!!!
Avatar f tn looking substance called keratin.They may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. A cutaneous horn is a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn. Cutaneous horns usually are asymptomatic.But sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn i found one artticle in uahoo news they said 95% of all human ilnesses are caused by bacteria ,viruses,worms or fungi then i understood and went to thailand for self threatment first 1 month doxycycline then 15 days flukonazole for fungi then 20 days mebendazole for worms, all gone feel good again i have research a lot about dosage etc ..
288415 tn?1231634102 and have asked for Dermotic Oil to try. I do want to mention. I have 2 dogs, one which is being treated for a yeast infection in her ears. She digs and groans at her ears. They actually smell the same as mine at times, I did try Monistat. Again, only temporary relief. Not sure if it was a good idea, but as most of you know, when your desperate, you'll try anything to relieve the itch. Another thought, it's creepy, but I read it somewhere....
Avatar m tn i called back a week later, only to find out he had been fired - obviously for this problem~! there is little to no symptoms other than being able to feel them all the time. sometimes i get little pin ***** bites. i tried everything, one thing that DOES at least wash loose ones down my body is Kerosene. i found this out when i thought it was scabies, i used kero on my hair and guess what happened... i ended up with 50 bites on my chest and about 30 on each lower leg/ankles.
Avatar n tn My husband has been having skin rashes around his eyes, raised small red bumps, for several months and just won
Avatar n tn here i for the last 6 months i have had itchy eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
766586 tn?1284386798 I know its a little early but I am looking for some cycle buddies for my August IVF. This will be IVF #2 for this year. I turned 40 end of December. My first IVF resulted in twins but stopped growing at 7 weeks. I have been doing everything I can to prepare my body and mind for the next IVF. I've shed 30 pounds (so far, and still losing) since the height of my last pregnancy, been doing acupuncture since mid-May, exercising 4 times per week and will start chinese herbs this week.
Avatar m tn It sounds like a whole lot of misery for you. for the itchy skin, did you try QUELL lotion (over the counter item)--maybe scabies. Or cortizone cream? For the things crawling out your anus (maybe pinworms). ask your doctor for a prescription for Vermox or Mebendazole(by Rx only). In general, just google MORGELLONS SYNDROME or Morgellons disease and see if it fits you. I do not think you are imagining what you are feeling.
Avatar f tn but I know something is seriously wrong. Since my surgery, like you, Im on clarinex-D 24 hour dosage, with lunesta for sleep and celebrex for pain. Pre-surgery I was on nothing and worked out pretty regularly, sometimes 2x a day, weights and cardio split. Now, I ache and hobble around.... I think instead of going into a long winded story of what I think is going on with me, I'm just going to start telling people I have heavy metal poisoning.
280700 tn?1210287416 Hello! I am also starting my second round of clomid 100mg this month, last month was 50mg. I had 2 m/c in 2007 & they believe it was due to low levels of pregesterone so I'm taking clomid to help. Is anyone else in the same boat? I'm on D6 right now & taking on D5-9. It didn't work last month so really hoping for the best this month.
