Product information

What is Chloramphenicol used for in pets?

Chloramphenicol is an antibiotic that can be used for dogs and cats, just like humans. It is effective against a wide range of bacteria and is used to treat skin infections, urinary tract infections, respiratory infections and bacterial conjunctivitis (also known as pink eye).

However, animals should only be given Chloramphenicol if they have a valid prescription from a vet. Make sure that you follow the dosages prescribed by your vet, as animals are more sensitive to the effects of antibiotics than humans.

Can my pet have human Chloramphenicol?

Chloramphenicol is a prescription-only medication licensed for human use but is also commonly prescribed to certain animals. Your pet can use Chloramphenicol if it has been prescribed by a veterinarian. Always follow the veterinarian's instructions on dosage and administration.

What is the dosage of Chloramphenicol for dogs and cats?

The dosage of Chloramphenicol for pets depends on the prescribed medicinal form, the size, weight and condition of the animal. Your vet will advise you on the correct dosage and form based on your pet's needs. You must finish the course of antibiotics even if your pet seems to have recovered, as this will ensure that all infection is cured.

How do I give my pet Chloramphenicol?

Chloramphenicol comes in several forms, including capsules, tablets, eye drops, ointments, liquid suspensions and injectables. Tablets, capsules and liquid suspensions should be given to your pet orally with food. You must measure the liquid form carefully when giving it to your pet. The eye drops and ointment usually have to be applied every few hours for the first 2 days or as advised by your veterinarian. The injectable form of chloramphenicol will be administered by a vet. Ensure that you follow the dosage and course of treatment as prescribed by your veterinarian.

What are the side effects of Chloramphenicol in pets?

The side effects of Chloramphenicol in pets will depend on the form of the medication administered. Generally, side effects of the tablets or capsules can include vomiting, diarrhoea, depression, weight loss and lethargy. In rare cases, it can also cause increased sensitivity to sunlight and skin reactions. If you notice any of these symptoms in your pet, contact your vet immediately.

Where can I buy Chloramphenicol for my pet?

Chloramphenicol is a prescription medication so it must be prescribed by a vet for pet use. Once a prescription has been issued, Chloramphenicol can be purchased from either the vet clinic or a pharmacy. Online pharmacies such as HealthExpress accepts vet prescriptions, so you can order your pet's Chloramphenicol treatment conveniently online at an affordable price.

How do I place an order for Chloramphenicol for my pet at HealthExpress?

You're already in the right place. Head to the top of the page and select the required form, dose and quantity. This information should be found on the prescription from the vet. Once you have confirmed the delivery method and completed the payment, you will receive instructions on how to send your pet's prescription so we can send you your pet's treatment.

How much is Chloramphenicol for pets?

The cost of Chloramphenicol for pets can vary depending on the formulation, dosage strength and quantity needed. As Chloramphenicol is a medicine used to treat humans as well, you can typically get it for a better price if you buy it from a pharmacy than if you get it from the vet. Online pharmacies advertise their prices, and you typically won't find it cheaper than from an online provider, such as HealthExpress. Additionally, some pet insurance providers may cover the cost of certain medications. Make sure to do your research before making a purchase.
