Doxycycline is an antibiotic used to treat infections like Lyme disease, chlamydia, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and other bacterial infections.
Doxycycline requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
Side Effects & Warnings
Do not give doxycycline to pregnant or nursing animals. Do not give multivitamins, calcium supplements, antacids, or laxatives within two hours before or after giving doxycycline. These products can reduce the effectiveness of doxycycline. Diarrhea is typical for animals on antibiotics. If diarrhea is watery or contains blood contact your veterinarian. Do not stop dosages unless directed by your veterinarian.
Typical dosing for cats and dogs is based on weight:
Dog: 2mg-5mg/lb of pet’s weight every 12-24 hours Cat: 2mg-5mg/lb of pet’s weight every 12-24 hours
While Doxycycline can be given with or without food, make sure there is fresh water available for your pet.

Give doxycycline for the entire length of time prescribed by your veterinarian, even though symptoms may improve before the infection is completely treated.
