Albon is a Pfizer product that has been around for decades but is still a very effective antibiotic. This product is used in veterinary medicine primarily to kill a parasite called coccidia. This parasite is found frequently as a pathogen and seems to be particularly dangerous to puppies and kittens. Albon eliminates the parasite, and as an added bonus, is very palatable when given orally. This means no wrestling match with your puppy or kitten when administering the medication. Albon is also a relatively inexpensive medication. Always have your veterinarian do a fecal flotation before you treat with any dewormer so that you know precisely what medication is appropriate.
If you notice any behavioral or physiological changes in your pet while administering Albon, contact your veterinarian immediately.
