Is Metrobactin exactly the same as Metronidozole?My old dog has Meronidozole long term for upset tum but this time been prescribed 3/4 of a tablet of these instead( He used to have 400mg metronidozole)?

  • Veterinary Surgeon

Yes, Metrobactin contains Metronidazole. The Metrobactin tablets contain 500mg of Metronidazole as oppose to the 400mg Metronidazole tablets. This is why your vet has prescribed 3/4 of a tablet of Metrobactin rather than a whole one.
