Cefa-Drops Indications

Cefa-Drops (cefadroxil) are indicated for the treatment of the following conditions:

Dogs: Cefa-Drops, 50 mg, should be administered orally at a dosage of 10 mg/lb of body weight twice daily. Dogs with skin or soft tissue infections should be treated for a minimum of three days. Genitourinary tract infections should be treated for a minimum of seven days with cefadroxil. Maximum duration of therapy should not exceed 30 days.

Cats: Cefa-Drops, 50 mg, should be administered orally at a dosage of 10 mg/lb of body weight once daily. Maximum duration of therapy should not exceed 21 days.
