Cefazolin Basics
Cefazolin is available by prescription only. Cefazolin is a member of the penicillin family. Cefazolin works by inhibiting cell wall synthesis, resulting in the death of bacteria. Cefazolin is used to treat bacterial infections, surgical prophylaxis, orthopedic infections, soft tissue infections, or sepsis. Cefazolin is available in a 10 mL or 100mL bottle.

Cefazolin Warnings
Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Cefazolin should not be used in animals that are allergic to penicillin, or any beta-lactam antibiotics. Use with caution in pregnant or nursing animals. Store protected from light and moisture.

Cefazolin Directions
Use as directed by your veterinarian. Follow the instructions printed on the prescription label. Store at room temperature protected from light. Complete the entire prescription to ensure a full recovery, even if your pet seems to be improving, unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian.

If you notice any behavioral or physiological changes in your pet while giving cefazolin, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Adverse Reactions and Serious Side Effects
Adverse reactions can occur. Signs of hypersensitivity to cefazolin include rash, fever, anaphylaxis, anorexia, vomiting, or diarrhea.
