Medication: Tylosin

Your dog has been prescribed the active ingredient Tylosin to manage antibiotic-responsive diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, or to treat cryptosporidiosis and colitis. In cases of antimicrobial resistance to more traditional antibiotics, tylosin may be given for certain skin infections (pyoderma). Tylosin is also used to eliminate the red-brown tear stains (epiphora) in dogs with light colored facial fur.

Key points:
• Antibiotic.
• Anti-inflammatory.
• Labeled for food-producing animals but used commonly in an extralabel fashion in companion animals such as dogs, cats, and small mammals.
• Dosage: daily or twice daily.
