Antirobe general information

What is Antirobe used for?

Antirobe capsules 25mg are used to treat bacterial infections in dogs due to susceptible bacteria, including Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Bacteriodes, Prevotella and Fusobacterium.   Antirobe capsules 25mg are used in the treatment in dogs of infected wounds, abscesses, dental infections and osteomyelitis, which is an infection of the bone or bone marrow.  Osteomyelitis may be caused by an infection from another part of the body reaching the bone through the blood, or the bone may become infected from an accident involving the bone.  Antirobe capsules 25mg are specially formulated for treatment of bacterial infections in dogs, but dry capsules are not recommended for cats.
