What are Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim Tablets (SMZ-TMP)?

Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim (SMZ-TMP) Tablets are a combination antibiotic used to treat respiratory, urinary tract, skin, or gastrointestinal infections, and other conditions. Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim (SMZ-TMP) Tablets require a prescription from your veterinarian, and are sold per tablet.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Effective against a wide array of bacterial infections in dogs and cats
  • Simple once-a-day dosing

How do Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim Tablets (SMZ-TMP) work?

Sulfamethoxazole is a sulfonamide antibiotic that limits the growth of bacteria. Sulfonamides inhibit synthesis of folic acid, important to bacterial DNA synthesis. Trimethoprim works by starving the bacteria of nucleotides necessary for DNA replication.
