What are the Downsides of Antibiotics for Pets?





Quote:
Are you worried about giving your pet too many antibiotics? To avoid resistance, there are alternative products to help treat common health issues.

Antibiotics are commonly prescribed to treat a variety of ailments in dogs, but pet owners should be aware that there are some downsides associated with the use of antibiotics. Thankfully, there are alternatives to antibiotics as well, so itís definitely worth taking an integrative approach when it comes to your furry friendís health.

Your Dogís Body Could Develop a Resistance to Antibiotics

Antibiotic resistance occurs in humans, but it can also occur in pets. Basically, bacteria that cause disease are able to find ways to resist the medications that are prescribed by vets.

Resistance can develop as a result of antibiotics being over-prescribed and used in instances when they arenít actually appropriate. Improper duration and dosage could also lead to antibiotic resistance, and low, frequent doses that arenít strong enough to eliminate all bacteria could result in some of the surviving bacteria developing a resistance. The bacteria can then pass that resistance on to other bacteria, rendering the medication ineffective.

To our users - I have not heard that antibiotic resistance happens in birds, and avian vets prescribe antibiotics because birds are incredibly fragile and only show illness when they are quite ill. Do not delay treating your bird with antibiotics due to any fears of a "resistance" in our avian friends. Birds are not dogs, and should not be treated as such. Always follow the advice of your avian vet!

Dear PetGuide.com
Not sure you are up on things yet, but there is a new thing on the internet that has been around for a decade or so. It is called targeted marketing. The radical concept is that you actually place advertising and information that your potential client / customer might find useful and thus purchase your product. Like in this case. It is somewhat doubtful that information and advertising for dogs in general will be effective on a forum that is dedicated for a specific purpose of discussing a species of avians (parrotlets). It may even be aggravating to your targeted demographic base and make them hostile enough to write posts such as this one and may possibly drive clients from your demographic captured population mechanism (this forum).
Just a thought.
Ozzie

For all of our members, I would disregard this information completely regarding our birds.
Avian medicine is nothing like mammal medicine.
Be sure you have an Avian Vet in your area you can go should you ever see signs of illness in your bird. Avian vets are most experienced in types of antibiotics and dosage for birds small like parrotlet, and a non avian vet may not be as familiar with the needs of an exotic bird like a parrotlet.
Having a plan on what to do BEFORE they get sick is always best.
