When your pet is feeling under the weather, sometimes rest just doesn’t do the trick. Cephalexin is a safe and effective antibiotic used to combat a wide range of bacterial infections from dermal to urinary. It is also quite effective against common bone and joint infections. Cephalexin is especially useful for staphylococcal or deep skin infections. While Cephalexin is often prescribed to combat common bacteria found in cats and dogs, it can also be used to fight off infections in humans.
Cephalexin is the generic alternative to Keflex.

Rated 3 out of 5 These pills are okay.
I got these pills from my vet several different times. And everytime I would give these to her she would vomit so much. Because one time she had pimples all over her chin he said it was a staph infection. And I had to stop giving them to her. Then she got scrathced on the nose and she ripped it open and that time he gave me these orange pills that was $ 30.00 for 10 pills. She puked at first but then they was helping her. And now she cut her paw and I had some left over of these cephalexin I been giving them to her so she don't get a infection in her paw. And she has not puked once. So I guess these pills are okay for certain dogs. Mine is a rottweiler/german shepherd.
