Is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, which means it targets a wide range of bacteria. It also has similarly broad antimicrobial properties, targeting potential dangerous microbes like Wolbachia, Dirofilaria immitis, E. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Serratia, Klebsiella, and Truperella, just to name a few.
Some examples of conditions veterinarians treat with doxycycline for dogs include:
- Respiratory infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Infected wounds

- Lyme disease
If your dog’s condition is not on this list, don’t worry. Doxycycline has a broad range of applications and can help treat many different types of bacterial infections and microorganisms that affect dogs.
The usual doses for doxycycline in dogs and cats are 10 mg/kg given orally with food every 24 hours, or 5 mg/kg given orally every 12 hours for 3 weeks in cats with chlamydiosis.
