Commonly prescribed for: Susceptible Infections
Species: Dogs and Cats
Therapeutic Class: Antibiotic
Tetracycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic from the same family as oxytetracycline, doxycycline, minocycline, and others. The tetracycline antibiotics are bacteriostatic. Their mechanism of action is through the reversible binding of bacterial 30S ribosomes and the alteration of the bacterial cytoplasmic membrane. Tetracycline antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections due to aerobic, gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, mycoplasma, rickettsiae, chlamydia, and some protozoa. Doxycycline and minocycline have greater lipid solubility than tetracycline and may be more effective against some Staphylococcal infections. Certain gram-negative bacteria, particularly Pseudomonas and some enteric bacteria, are resistant to tetracycline.
