What is Simplicef?

Simplicef is a cephalosporin antibiotic used to treat skin infections (wounds and abscesses) caused by susceptible strains of bacteria. It is administered once a day and requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is sold per tablet. Its long half-life allows for once-daily dosing, which may result in increased compliance and better clinical outcomes.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • Effective in treating bacterial skin infections in dogs
  • Increased compliance and better clinical outcomes with simple once-a-day dosing
  • Can be given with or without food
  • Film-coated, odorless tablets for easy administration

Cautions:

Dogs with known hypersensitivity to penicillin or cephalosporins should not be given simplicef. Do not use in dogs with known allergy to penicillins or cephalosporins. The safety of cefpodoxime proxetil in dogs used for breeding, pregnant dogs, or lactating bitches has not been demonstrated. 

Brand Name:

Simplicef (Pfizer Animal Health)

Generic Name:

Cefpodoxime proxetil

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the dose as soon as possible. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose, and continue with the regular schedule. Do not give your pet two doses at once.

Possible side effects of Simplicef:

Mild nausea, diarrhea, or yeast infection may be more likely to occur.  Continue to give Simplicef and notify your veterinarian if these symptoms occur.

Storage:

Should be stored in a cool dry place.

Directions:

Give this medication as directed by your veterinarian. Simplicef should be given with food to increase absorption in the body. Keep plenty of water available for your pet to drink. Give all of the Simplicef even if your pet appears to be better. Symptoms may improve before the infection is completely treated.
