Hello,

Thank you for your question. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

What is wrong with your dog that you want to give him ceftibuten?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

This antibiotic is not commonly used in dogs, but there are published doses for using it. It will help to know what illness or infection you are treating.

the vet treated her for it but i forgot to give her the last two pills
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

What do you mean, a female infection?

Did your vet treat the infection with ceftibuten? Is the infection still there?

If she has an infection of her uterus, called a pyometra, antibiotics alone may not be able to clear the infection no matter what antibiotic you are using. What part of her reproductive tract is infected?

he did not say he did not check it he saw a fluid liquid come out mostly clear with just a tinge of white in it
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Oh, dear, heartworms, too! She has a lot of problems.

If she is on antibiotics and now you want to switch her to ceftibuten, I would recommend continuing the original antibiotic, or checking with her veterinarian. Ceftibuten is not a common antibiotic in veterinary medicine. I would use the original antibiotic until the infection is better.

Is she spayed? I would also ask your veterinarian if she has a pyometra, an infection of the uterus. This usually needs to be treated with a non antibiotic medication called prostaglandins, to flush the pus out of the uterus. The other treatment is to spay her if she is not spayed.
