I noticed on our vets billing summary that she administered 250 mg. Of Ciprofloxacin on the day we brought her in for a seizure. She does not and did not have any of the health issues that I’ve read it is used to treat.Why would the vet give her this medication as it’s strongly advised not to give it to dogs with CNS. Disorders such as seizures and can potentially cause and directly result in seizures as a side effect? Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, SIGNED….Love Our Dogs

i would ask the vet who prescribed it for clarification.  seriously – they’d know why they did.

yes, Cipro’s a serious heavy duty antibiotic – it kills Anthrax, of all things! maybe your vet feels your dog had an infection in the brain?

i agree, and i would be concerned about that. maybe it’s time for a second opinion.
