Bird and Fish Doxycycline - How Doxycycline Works
Doxycycline is commonly prescribed by veterinarians to control bacterial diseases. Doxycycline works by inhibiting bacterial growth and reproduction, which helps to eliminate the bacteria and the infection. This broad-spectrum antibiotic works against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria that often infect aquarium fish and birds.
Fish doxycycline is often prescribed for bacterial diseases in aquariums, such as Fin Rot, Tail Rot, and Mouth Rot, as well as ulcers and sores. It is often put into the tank water; however, it is sometimes administered with food for severe internal bacterial problems.
Bird doxycycline is commonly prescribed for the treatment of Chlamydia infections and is often administered in food or water.
