Minocycline is an oral tetracycline antibiotic. It may be used to treat Brucellosis (in combination), Lyme disease and certain nosocomial infections where other more commonly used drugs are ineffective. It has been investigated as adjunctive therapy for treating hemangiosarcomas, but early results have been disappointing.
Possible Side Effects
The most common side effects include gastrointestinal disturbances. Occasionally nausea and/or vomiting has been observed, especially when high doses are administered. Rarely, animals may develop diarrhea or loose stools from oral minocycline. This is related to a change in the bacterial population in the animal's intestine. If diarrhea is observed, your veterinarian should be notified, and a change in medication may be indicated.
