What is Zeniquin:
Zeniquin is a broad spectrum oral fluoroquinolone antibiotic used for the treatment of bacterial infections such as skin and soft-tissue infections and urinary tract infections due to susceptible organisms. This medication may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Zeniquin to my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has seizures or other central nervous system (CNS) disorders, or if your pet is breeding, pregnant, or lactating.

How should this medication be given: Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Give all of the medication your veterinarian has prescribed. Symptoms may start to improve before the infection is completely treated. The usual dose of Zeniquin for dogs and cats is 1.25mg per pound given once a day, but the dosage may be increased to 2.5mg per pound. Treatment should continue for a maximum of 30 days; however, if there is no improvement after 5 days, your pet should be reevaluated. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store Zeniquin at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

What happens if I miss giving a dose: Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose may include loss of appetite, vomiting, dehydration, excessive salivation, tremors, reddened skin, or facial swelling.

What should I avoid while giving Zeniquin to my pet: Do not give Zeniquin to animals allergic to it or other fluoroquinolone antibiotics.

What are the possible side effects of Zeniquin: Stop giving the medication and seek emergency veterinary medical attention if your pet experiences an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; or hives). Other less serious side effects may also occur. Continue to give the medication and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, or drowsiness. Side effects other than those listed may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the pet.

What other drugs will affect Zeniquin: Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Zeniquin. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any other prescription or over-the-counter medications.
