Chloramphenicol

From Dog

Chloramphenicol is a broad-spectrum bacteriostatic antimicrobial similar in action to florfenicol.

It is usually reserved for cases of bacterial resistance due to bone-marrow suppressive side-effects.

This drug is ineffective against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and in strains of Proteus spp and Klebsiella spp.

Recommended dose rate in dogs is 40 - 60 mg/kg orally three times daily.
