Antibiotics

There are four types of microorganisms that can cause infection in or on your pet's body. These tiny microbials include bacterium, viruses, fungi, and protozoa. Your veterinarian typically determines what type of pet antibiotic medication to prescribe only after making a diagnosis and determining what type of organism is causing the problem.

The pet antibiotic you should use to treat your furry companion depends on which organism you're fighting and how the medication works in your pet's body.
