Product description

Cefpoderm are tablets for oral use in dogs only.

Active ingredients

Each tablet of Cefpoderm contains:

Cefpodoxime proxetil (mg)
Cefpoderm 100 mg 100
Cefpoderm 200 mg 200

Indications for use

Cefpoderm is indicated for the treatment of skin infections (wounds and abscesses) in dogs caused by susceptible strains of Staphylococcus pseudintermedius, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus canis (group G, β hemolytic), Escherichia coli, Pasteurella multocida, and Proteus mirabilis.

Administration and dosage

  • Cefpoderm dose range:

    • The dose range of Cefpoderm (cefpodoxime proxetil) tablets is 5-10 mg/kg (2.3-4.5 mg/lb) body weight, administered orally, once a day. The dose may be given with or without food. The determination of dosage for any particular patient must take into consideration such factors as the severity and nature of the infection, the susceptibility of the causative organisms, and the integrity of the patient’s host-defense mechanisms. Obtain a sample of the pathogenic organism for culture and sensitivity testing prior to beginning antimicrobial therapy. Once results become available, continue with appropriate therapy.
  • Cefpoderm duration:

    • Cefpoderm tablets should be administered once daily for 5-7 days or for 2-3 days beyond the cessation of clinical signs, up to a maximum of 28 days. Treatment of acute infections should not be continued for more than 3-4 days if no response to therapy is seen.
