Antibiotics are medicines used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections. They may be administered orally as tables or liquid suspension or injection. Common examples of conditions often treated with antibiotic in cats include bite abscesses and other penetrating wounds leading to cellutlitis which causes a spreading swelling in the skin, and/or generalised sepsis. Serious respiratory or urinary tract infections where there is suspected bacterial involvement are also examples which may warrant antibiotic therapy.

If you are concerned for your cat’s health in any way, please contact your veterinary practice.

Use Medicines Responsibly. For more information please refer to the Responsible Use sections of the NOAH website.
