This website is designed to give you easy access to literature-based data on the pharmacokinetics
of commonly used antimicrobials in dogs, cats, horses, and cattle.
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.
PLEASE pay attention to all graph titles. They 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. New data and drugs are added as time is available. An effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the data and the references. However, if errors are found, please contact Dr. Virginia Fajt at email@example.com. If you have additional data on dogs, cats, and horses that should be added to the site, please let us know.
