    Enrofloxacin- Uses and Forms for Ear Infections

    Enrofloxacin: This is in the drug class fluoroquinolones and is a broad-spectrum bactericidal antibiotic.  It can be administered to both cats and dogs to treat ear infections. Enrofloxacin is effective against both gram positive and gram negative bacteria, particularly E.coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Vibri, Staphylococci and Brucella. Enrofloxacin is a beneficial choice for difficult to treat [...]

    Piroxicam – Uses and Forms for Arthritis

    PIROXICAM: This is in the drug class of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDís) used to treat arthritis. Piroxicam can be given to both cats and dogs to relieve pain, inflammation and to a lesser degree high temperature. NSAIDís action is to block cyclooxygenase enzymes 1 and 2, which lower prostaglandin levels that are higher in times [...]

    Management of Feline Hyperthyroidism with Methimazole

    Hyperthyroidism is the most common endocrine disorder in felines, with a disease prevalence of approximately 0.33%.The pathophysiology of feline hyperthyroidism is most commonly due to a benign hyperplasia of the thyd gland that leads to an increased production of T3 and T4 in the affected animal. This adenomatous hyperplasia is responsible for 98% of cases [...]

    Tramadol: An Appropriate Analgesic?

    Uses/Indications: Tramadol is a synthetic codeine analogue and a weak μ opioid receptor agonist. Tramadol also inhibits neuronal reuptake of norepinephrine and serotonin and may facilitate serotonin release. Therefore, it is recommended for acute and chronic pain and may be used alone to treat mild pain or adjunctively in a multimodal plan to treat moderate [...]

    Amantadine for Chronic Pain

    Uses/Indications: Amantadine may have efficacy and clinical usefulness against some veterinary viral diseases, but presently the greatest interest for its use in small animals is as an NMDA antagonist in the adjunctive treatment of chronic pain, particularly those tolerant to opioids. Amantadine antagonizes the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, and chronic pain can be maintained or exacerbated [...]

    Tramadol: An Appropriate Analgesic?

    Uses/Indications: Tramadol is a synthetic codeine analogue and a weak μ opioid receptor agonist. Tramadol also inhibits neuronal reuptake of norepinephrine and serotonin and may facilitate serotonin release. Therefore, it is recommended for acute and chronic pain and may be used alone to treat mild pain or adjunctively in a multimodal plan to treat moderate [...]

    Mirtazapine for Appetite Stimulation in Dogs and Cats

    Uses/Indications:  Treatment of chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting (CINV), anorexia, associated with renal failure (azotemia), congestive heart failure, gastrointestinal disorders, liver disease, or neoplasia. Studies/Case Reports: For years, veterinarians have used B-vitamins and steroids for appetite stimulation in canines and benzodiazepines in felines. Pharmacy faculty at The Mississippi State College of Veterinary Medicine used mirtazapine [...]

    Veterinary Amitriptyline

    Amitriptyline is one of the most widely used tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) in companion animal behavioral medicine, exerting antihistaminic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antidepressant effects. It increases synaptic activity of serotonin and norepinephrine, has significant central and peripheral anticholinergic activity, and stimulates β-adrenergic receptors in smooth muscle (e.g. the bladder), causing a decrease in smooth muscle excitability [...]

    Xylitol-Free Gabapentin for Pain Management

    Although only approved for human use, Gabapentin is widely used in veterinary medicine for both neuroleptic and analgesic indications, and has become a valuable adjunct in veterinary therapies. Gabapentin was available as a scored 100mg tablet allowing for some small animal dosing, however this dosage form has been discontinued leaving only 100mg capsules and Neurontin® [...]

    Prednisone vs. Prednisolone in Felines

    Historically, prednisone and prednisolone have been considered therapeutically equivalent when used in veterinary medicine, however studies prove otherwise. Although found equivalent in humans and canines, feline and equine dosing is considerably different. In a study by Rosser and Graham-Mize, feline were administered a 10mg total dose of either prednisone or prednisolone to determine comparative pharmacokinetics [...]
