    Default Anyone???

    Does anyone have experience with the antibiotic Minacycline??? The vet started Brutus on this for tonsillitis on Friday. He told me to give him Pepcid 1/2hr before the antibiotic and then give the antibiotic with food as it can cause an upset tummy. GREAT! Brutus started throwing up yesterday morning and I have to assume it is this antibiotic. I called the vet and he said to cut the dose down to 1 1/2 capsules twice a day instead of 2 in the morning and 1 at night as he thinks this is too strong. I have to deconstruct the capsules and refill them with less of the powder that is inside them. This seems ridiculous to me. Anyone else have this reaction to this medication?? My poor baby. I also started him on a bland diet to help his tummy tum.

    no, not familiar with it. but blue gets diarrhea from most antibiotics so I know it's pain.

    Can your vet give something like Cerenia? It's an anti-vomit med. Wellie was on it (up until yesterday) while he was on his antiobitoics.

    Poor guy. It does sound like he's not reacting well to the minocycline. I think your vet should try another antibiotic. Trying to take out the powder from the capsules to give him 1 and 1/2 in the a.m. isn't very accurate and you may be giving him less than he needs for the infection.

    Minocycline is a semisynthetic form of tetracycline and currently is the drug that replaces doxycycline which is in short supply since 2013. As with any cycline...it can casue nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. And becasue it is an antibiotic, yeast infection is of concern.

    I hope this helps.

    I don't have any experience with antibiotics for pets either, but just wanted to say I'm sorry you're going through this with Brutus, poor guy, I hope he feels better soon. I would ask the vet if their is a different antibiotic you could try. I also didn't know that dogs could get tonsillitis, how did you know he had this? What are the symptoms of tonsillitis in dogs?

    He was coughing. When the vet came to check him, he was also running a fever.
