Neomycin Sulfate Oral Solution
Neomycin Sulfate Oral Solution treats intestinal infections, primarily bacterial enteritis caused by E Coli., in a wide array of animals including cats, dogs, and horses. This medication can be given in the drinking water of the afflicted animal, making treatment easy.
- Treats bacterial infections in the intestine.
- Also given as a preventative treatment before surgery in the gastrointestinal region.
- Easily administered in drinking water.
- May also be used to treat hepatic encephalopathy or to lower ammonia levels.
- Requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
