Dicloxacillin Sodium Monohydrate
Dicloxacillin sodium is an antibacterial agent of the isoxazolyl penicillin series. It is chemically related to oxacillin. It is a penicillinase-resistant, acid resistant semisynthetic penicillin suitable for oral administration. Penicillinase-resistant penicillins exert a bactericidal action against penicillin-susceptible microorganisms during the state of active multiplication. All penicillins inhibit the biosynthesis of the bacterial cell wall.
Dicloxacillin sodium antibiotic has been shown to be active against most strains of aerobic Gram-positive microorganisms and Staphylococcus spp. (penicillinase producing). 2
The drug is indicated in dogs only for the treatment of pyoderma (pus-forming dermatitis). 3
