What is Albon?
Albon is a prescription antibiotic drug. It is used for the treatment of certain bacterial infections as well as treatment of coccidiosis, a protozoal infection of the intestinal tract.
Who is it for?
Albon is labeled for use in cats and dogs, and may be prescribed for other species.
What are the benefits?
- Prescription antibiotic used to treat susceptible bacterial infections
- Also used to treat coccidiosis, a protozoal intestinal infection
- Available in multiple dosage forms for easy administration
Albon is prescribed as a general antiprotozoal for the treatment of coccidiosis, a protozoal infection of the intestinal tract. Albon is also prescribed for the treatment of a wide range of susceptible bacterial infections. Liquid is a palatable custard flavor, and tablets are available in a variety of strengths.
How does Albon work?
This medication works by inhibiting the production of folic acid in bacteria. Without folic acid, bacteria and coccidia cannot make essential proteins and eventually die.
Is there a generic equivalent available?
How is it given?
Albon tablets and oral suspension are given by mouth, and may be given with food. Encourage your pet to drink water when taking Albon to prevent crystals from forming in the urine.
Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Use all of the medication prescribed, even if your pet appears well. If the entire course of treatment is not given, the infection may recur or worsen.
What results can I expect?
Albon is absorbed well from the digestive system and is distributed to many body tissues, making it effective against infections in multiple organs. It is active against many different types of bacteria. It is usually given once a day for a number of days. If doses are missed or the entire treatment regimen is not completed, the infection could recur or worsen. Consult your veterinarian if the animal's condition does not improve or worsens after beginning treatment with Albon.
