The vet prescribed cephalexin 500mg for my dog. Well, she died so... My husband gets ear infections on a regular basis. The doc gives him antibiotics. Well, we cant always afford the doc, no insurance, so I was wondering if my husband could take the cephalexin himself? The capsules are half dark green the other half light green and are imprinted ML-A08 500. I cannot find the pill on the pill identifier section.

I would not recommend you to take Cephalexin for dogs, the medication may contains some excipients which are not used for humans. If you do not have an insurance and are not able to pay a lot for medicinine, you can order generic Cephalexin online at some reliable online pharmacies.

My vet told me that the drugs prescribed for animals are exactly the same as given to humans. There is no difference, the companies dont make an "inferior" product just for animals as the other answerer implies. I found this out when I asked if I could use some tramadol I had on hand for my dog. She said its no problem, just mind that the dose (number of pills, etc) is different and much stronger for dogs.
