Doxycycline is an advanced analogue of the tetracycline family of antibiotics with broad spectrum activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including penicillinase producers and anaerobes, as well as Rickettsia, Chlamydia (Chlamydophila) and Mycoplasma. Activity has been demonstrated against a wide range of bacterial organisms including Staphylococcus sp., Streptococcus sp., Escherichia coli, Pasteurella sp., Haemophilus sp., Clostridia sp., Listeria sp., Bacteroides sp., Bordetella sp., Klebsiella sp. and others.
PrecautionsThe use of tetracycline antibiotics in young animals prior to the eruption of adult teeth may lead to permanent yellow discolouration of the teeth. The absorption of doxycycline may be affected by the presence of antacids containing aluminium, calcium and magnesium salts. Use of antacids should therefore be avoided by patients receiving doxycycline.
