Commonly prescribed for: Bacterial Infections
Species: Dogs, Cats, and Horses
Therapeutic Class: Injectable Antibiotic
Amikacin is an injectable antibiotic that is used to treat serious bacterial infections in dogs, cats, horses, ferrets, birds, reptiles, pocket pets/small mammals and pet fish. Amikacin is a bactericidal antibiotic which means that it kills the bacteria that are sensitive to it. It is most effective against gram negative bacteria and has no effect on fungus, viruses, or bacteria that grow where there is no oxygen (anaerobic). Gentamicin is another antibiotic from the same family as amikacin. Some of the gram negative bacteria that are resistant to gentamicin remain sensitive to amikacin and amikacin also has the advantage of being less toxic to the kidneys.
