Comparative efficacy of pradofloxacin and amoxicillin/clavulanic acid in dogs with deep pyoderma.
Dogs treated with Veraflox® tablets showed a significantly lower rate of recurrence in the first two weeks after cessation of therapy (0% for the pradofloxacin group versus 11% for the amoxicillin/clavulanic acid group, p<0.01), indicating a more complete microbial elimination. In a recent systematic review this was considered fair evidence for a high efficacy of pradofloxacin in canine deep pyoderma 5.
The remission rates were 86% for pradofloxacin and 73% for amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, and mean time to clinical remission was 34 days and 31 days, respectively. Furthermore, the reduction of diseased skin surface was also significantly different between both treatment groups.
