My husband's older dog, Angie, developed a pressure sore on her leg which became infected. She is relatively inactive because of osteoarthritis (for which she is also being treated), so a trip to the vet was warranted.
The doctor, besides wrapping the wound and giving her an injection, prescribed Simplicef Tablets to treat her. This is an antibiotic which is good for treating skin infections. Plus, the dosing is simple because it's once a day. My husband gives her one and one half tablets in a pill pocket once daily. Each tablet is 100 mg.
Angie's wound seems to be doing nicely. She's been to the vet once since her original visit, and he was pleased with how the wound looked. She has another followup visit in a week, and hopefully, she will continue to do well on this mediction.
Of course, every medication has side effects, but Angie seems to be tolerating it nicely. I'll feel better when she doesn't have to take it anymore, simply because I don't like medication for humans or pets, but Simplicef does seem to be healing her infection, and the doctor is pleased with her progress.
