A Review of Putney Cefpodoxime Tablets

Putney tablets (cefpodoxime proxetil) are a proven, safe way to handle skin infections in dogs. Simple application and the ability to combat several bacterial strains make Putney tablets a common drug for infections in vet offices. The sale of Putney cefpodoxime tablets is, however, restricted to licensed veterinarians and pharmacies, and Medi-Vet must have a current license on file prior to shipping your order. Let’s review some of the features of Putney cefpodoxime products that make them so popular for skin infections and wound treatments.

Cefpodoxime proxetil can be given with or without food, making it easy to take the drug at convenient times as opposed to only with meals. Offered in 100mg and 200mg tablet varieties, cefpodoxime proxetil tablets from Putney are suitable for dogs big and small. This antimicrobial medication is incredibly fast-acting. In many cases, noticeable change can be seen within 5-7 days with a maximum use of 28 days. However, be sure to cease treatment after 3-4 days if there are no noticeable signs of improvement. Make sure that all tablets are stored at a comfortable room temperature of 68 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit. Cefpodoxime proxetil can be used to treat the following strains of bacteria:

  • Staphylococcus intermedius
  • Staphylococcus aureus 
  • Streptococcus canis (group G, B hemolytic) 
  • Escherichia coli 
  • Pasteurella multocida
  • Proteus mirabilis

While cefpodoxime tablets can be administered to many dogs, it does have some limitations. Dogs that are being bred, are currently pregnant, or are lactating should not be given these tablets as clinical proof of safety with this drug has not been found.

Medi-Vet offered Putney cefpodoxime proxetil at the competitive price of just over $72 for 100 tablets or $130 for 200, making them a great deal compared to Simplicef by Pfizer. With a dosage of one tablet or less a day, that’s an unbeatable bargain! Stock your vet practice with Putney cefpodoxime and give your patients and their owners peace of mind with fast-acting, reliable medication for skin infections.
