Neomycin is given to pets to treat and prevent bacteria in the intestines. It is often given before surgery of the intestines. It also kills bacteria that produce ammonia, lowering these ammonia levels and treating a disorder called hepatic encephalopathy.
How It Works

Store in a tightly sealed container at room temperature.
