Does Orbax cause hair loss?

Hi – thanks for your email. Orbax is generally a very safe drug and associated with very few side effects. I have not seen hair loss as a side effect of Orbax. Orbax, also known as orbifloxacin, can cause diarrhea in some pets and is not recommended for use in puppies or those with seizures or epilepsy.

An article that might be helpful to you is Orbifloxacin.

Best of luck!
