Metronidazole is an antibiotic commonly used to treat protozoal and anaerobic bacterial infections, especially of the bowel. Metronidazole also has an anti-inflammatory effect on the GI tract. Metronidazole is bactericidal and act to disrupt the DNA of bacteria. It is absorbed rapidly from the GI tract, metabolized by the liver and excreted in the urine and the feces. Because Metronidazole has activity only against anaerobic bacteria, it is used commonly with other antibiotics when it is used to treat mixed-bacterial infections. Metronidazole is effective against protozoal infections in dogs and cats including Giardia, Entamoeba, Trichomonas and Balantidium.
