Abstract:  The author focuses on the risks and benefits of metronidazole benzoate and other sources of benzoate-related toxicity. She concludes that veterinary caregivers should minimize the amount of benzene-containing agents used in cats until further safety studies are completed. However, metronidazole benzoate can be a less stressful, more palatable dosage form for short-term therapy. Veterinarians should be reassured that metronidazole, when indicated for short-term use in hepatocompetent cats, is a relatively safe choice.
