Commonly prescribed for: Bacterial Diarrhea
Therapeutic Class: Antibiotic Combination
Kanamycin with bismuth subcarbonate and activated attapulgite is an oral combination drug that is used to treat bacterial diarrhea in the dog. Kanamycin is an antibiotic that is effective against many of the bacteria that cause diarrhea. Bismuth subcarbonate and activated attapulgite are nonspecific protectants for the inside lining of the gastro-instestinal (GI) tract. When this drug combination is given orally, it is being used as local treatment inside teh GI tract. Kanamycin kills the inappropriate bacteria that potentially are causing the diarrhea. Bismuth subcarbonate and activated attapulgite soothe and protect the interior lining of the GI tract. None of these three drugs are substantially absorbed into the general circulation. There are many other potential causes of diarrhea in the dog other than bacterial diarrhea. These include viruses, parasites, medication side effects, toxicity and metabolic problems. This drug combination is unlikely to be effective if the underlying problem is not due to a susceptible bacteria.
We can let your veterinarian know that you are interested in our compounded Kanamycin with Bismuth Subcarbonate and Activated Attapulgite.
