Collapse All
    • Plasma protein binding of sulfadimethoxine is high, creating a drug reservoir in the blood that maintains higher blood levels than most other long-acting sulfonamides.
    • A single, daily dose gives rapid and sustained therapeutic blood levels for 24 hours.
    • Daily dosing increases likelihood of compliance, potentially improving outcomes.
    • Available as a tablet and a palatable custard-flavored suspension that eases administration.


ALBON should not be used in dogs or cats with marked liver damage, blood dyscrasias, or in those with a history of sulfonamide hypersensitivity.
