Rilexine Chewable Tablets For Dogs


Antimicrobial for Oral Use in Dogs only

Virbac Rilexine Chewable Tablets are a chewable, bisected tablet supplied in 4 sizes containing 75 mg, 150 mg, 300 mg, and 600 mg of cephalexin. Cephalexin is a cephalosporin, beta-lactam, broad spectrum antibiotic indicated for the treatment of secondary superficial bacterial pyoderma in dogs caused by susceptible strains of Staphylococcus pseudintermedius.

Dosage and Administration:
The recommended dose is 22 mg/kg (10 mg/lb) of body weight twice daily for 28 days. Appropriate culture and susceptibility tests should be performed before treatment to determine the causative organism and its susceptibility to cephalexin. Therapy with Rilexine Chewable Tablets may be initiated before results of these tests are known; once the results become available, antimicrobial therapy should be adjusted accordingly. If acceptable response to treatment is not observed, then the diagnosis should be re-evaluated and appropriate alternative therapy considered.

Rilexine Chewable Tablets are contraindicated in dogs with a known allergy to cephalexin or to the ?-lactam (any of the penicillins or cephalosporins) group of antibiotics.

Not for use in humans. Keep this drug out of the reach of children. Antimicrobials, including penicillins and cephalosporins, can cause allergic reactions in sensitized individuals. Sensitized individuals handling such antimicrobials, including cephalexin, should avoid contact of the product with the skin and mucous membranes in order to minimize the risk of allergic reactions.

Federal (USA) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian
