Doxycycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic often prescribed for use in dogs, cats, and other pets. It is related to other tetracyclines, and is commonly used for the treatment of bacterial infections, leptospirosis, toxoplasmosis, mycoplasma, psittacosis, and many diseases carried by ticks including Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and salmon poisoning. Use all of the medication prescribed, or the infection is likely to recur or become worse. Do not give doxycycline during the first half of pregnancy since it can slow the growth, alter the skeleton, and yellow the teeth of unborn animals. Give only during the second half of pregnancy if benefits outweigh the risks. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences a skin rash, loss of appetite, vomiting, or diarrhea while being treated with doxycycline. Use caution when using the tablet form in cats; it could potentially damage the esophagus.
