Antimicrobial Pharmacokinetics for Companion Animals
This website is designed to give you easy access to
literature-based data on the pharmacokinetics of commonly used
antimicrobials in dogs, cats and horses. The pharmacokinetics
of antimicrobials are important in designing dose regimens or
determining if successful treatment is likely if you know the
susceptibility of the organism.
You can navigate this site by the sidebar menu, or view a full
listing of all drugs for one particular companion animal by
clicking "see all." PLEASE pay attention to all graph titles, which
will specify not only the administration route, but in some cases
the drug form or target bacterial species as well.
This website is a work in progress, with new data and drugs
added as time is available. Effort has been made to ensure
accuracy of the data and the references, but if errors are found,
please contact Virginia Fajt at firstname.lastname@example.org. If
you have additional data on dogs, cats, and horses that should be
added to the site, please let us know.
