Benefits of CONVENIA® (cefovecin sodium)

Wondering why you should choose an injectable antibiotic when it comes to treating your pet's bacterial skin infections? The following are just a few of the many advantages of using CONVENIA.

There are no doses to remember.

With oral medications, if you miss a dose or simply aren’t able to give your pet a pill at the right time, treatment can be less effective. But with a shot of CONVENIA, your veterinarian administers up to 14 days of an effective antibiotic*—cefovecin sodium—to your dog or cat.

You may see results in hours.

CONVENIA is a fast-acting antibiotic that targets the bacteria that cause signs of skin infection upon injection, so you may begin to see progress in a matter of hours.

It’s not a daily struggle.

Dogs and cats seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to oral medications. They know—and often become uncooperative—when we try to sneak a pill into their favorite treats. And when pets frantically struggle against their owners—almost as though they’re complete strangers—a long-acting antibiotic in the form of an injection just makes sense.

Your pet receives continuous antibiotic treatment.

Whether your pet is hard to pill or you forget a dose, accidentally interrupting the treatment regimen is all too easy. And that means your pet may not consistently receive the amount of antibiotic needed to fight off the infection. A single injection of CONVENIA provides safe antibiotic therapy around the clock for up to 14 days.*

One shot delivers up to two weeks of treatment.*

With a single injection of CONVENIA given by your veterinarian, you can rest easy knowing that for the next 14 days, your pet will benefit from a complete course of antibiotic treatment. CONVENIA is the only long-lasting antibiotic solution for your pet’s skin infection without daily doses, without pilling and without fuss. Period.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: People with known hypersensitivity to penicillin or cephalosporins should avoid exposure to CONVENIA. Do not use in dogs or cats with a history of allergic reactions to penicillins or cephalosporins. Side effects for both dogs and cats include vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite/anorexia and lethargy. See full Prescribing Information.

*In clinical studies, a single injection of CONVENIA was clinically equivalent to a 14-day antibiotic regimen.
