Product Description

Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, commonly known as amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium, is a synthetic antibiotic in the penicillin class. It is primarily utilized in veterinary medicine to combat bacterial infections in dogs and cats. These infections may encompass a range of conditions, including skin infections, soft tissue infections, periodontal disease, and urinary tract infections.

This medication comprises amoxicillin combined with clavulanic acid. Clavulanic acid protects the amoxicillin from certain enzymes that could otherwise render it ineffective against bacteria. This combination enhances the efficacy of the antibiotic in combating bacterial infections.

Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid is prescribed off-label, under veterinary supervision, to address urinary tract infections and other infections in dogs and cats. Adhering strictly to the veterinarian's directions when utilizing this medication off-label is crucial.

  • Administration -Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid is available in both tablet and liquid suspension forms for oral administration. It is typically administered alongside food to enhance absorption and minimize gastrointestinal upset.

  • Missed Dose -If a dose of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid is inadvertently skipped, it should be administered as soon as possible upon recall. However, if the missed dose coincides closely with the timing of the subsequent scheduled dose, it is advisable to skip the missed dose and resume the regular dosing schedule.

  • Side Effects -Common side effects of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid may include stomach upset, vomiting, and diarrhea. While rare, serious allergic reactions can also occur, necessitating prompt veterinary attention.

  • Risk Factors -This medication should be avoided in animals with known allergies to penicillin-like drugs. Additionally, it should never be administered to rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, or other rodents, as it can induce life-threatening diarrhea in these species.

  • Drug Interactions -Caution should be exercised when administering amoxicillin-clavulanic acid concurrently with medications such as inflammation or pain medicine, pentoxifylline, chloramphenicol, erythromycin, tetracycline, and cephalosporins. It is imperative to inform the veterinarian about all medications, including supplements and herbal therapies, to mitigate the risk of adverse interactions.

  • Monitoring -Veterinarians may adjust the dosage of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid or monitor the pet more closely if other medications are prescribed concurrently. Follow-up visits may also be necessary following the completion of the medication course to ensure the successful clearance of the infection.

  • Storage -Tablets should be stored in a tightly sealed container at room temperature, shielded from light. Liquid suspension medication should be refrigerated and discarded after 10 days or in accordance with the veterinarian's instructions.

In the event of an overdose or adverse reaction to amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, prompt veterinary assistance should be sought. Pet owners should contact the veterinary office immediately or follow the instructions for contacting an emergency facility.
