What is the most important information I should know about Amoxicillin: Amoxicillin is a prescription medication available as 100mg and 400mg tablets, 250mg and 500mg capsules, and 50mg/ml drops. The usual dose of amoxicillin in dogs and cats is 5-10mg/pound every 12-24 hours. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet develops severe or bloody diarrhea. Give all of the amoxicillin that is prescribed for your pet, since symptoms may begin to improve before the infection is completely treated.

What is Amoxicillin: Amoxicillin is a penicillin-like antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body. Amoxicillin can be used to treat infections such as ear infections, urinary tract infections, and skin infections. Amoxicillin may also be used for purposes other than those listed.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Amoxicillin to my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to another penicillin or to a cephalosporin. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease or stomach or intestinal disease.

How should this medication be given: Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Amoxicillin can be given with or without food. Give all of the amoxicillin even if your pet appears to be better. Symptoms may improve before the infection is completely treated. Store tablets and capsules at room temperature. Store the suspension in the refrigerator. Discard any unused suspension after 14 days.

What happens if I miss giving a dose: Give the missed dose as soon as you remember unless it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.

What happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment if an overdose is suspected. Symptoms of overdose may include muscle spasms or weakness, pain or twitching, seizures, confusion, coma, or agitation.

What should I avoid while giving Amoxicillin to my pet: There are no restrictions on food or activity during treatment with amoxicillin unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.

What are the possible side effects of Amoxicillin: Contact your veterinarian immediately if the pet experiences severe or bloody diarrhea during treatment. Stop giving amoxicillin and seek emergency veterinary medical care in the event of an allergic reaction (shortness of breath; hives; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; rash; or fainting), seizures, unusual bleeding, or bruising. Other less serious side effects such as mild nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or abdominal pain, or yeast or fungal infection may be more likely to occur. Continue to give amoxicillin and notify your veterinarian if these symptoms occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What other drugs will affect Amoxicillin: Before giving amoxicillin, tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given another antibiotic (for the same or a different infection), allopurinol, or probenecid. You may not be able to give amoxicillin or you may need to have the dosage adjusted. Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with amoxicillin. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over-the-counter medicines, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.

Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has additional information about amoxicillin written for health professionals that you may read.

 

Call your veterinarian for medical advice about any side effects to your pet. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Amoxicillin Caleb contracted kennel cough from my son's puppy Neo. After staying in the shelter for provo Neo came home with a cough, but the vet didn't tell us to keep our other dogs away from him, so all of our other dogs caught kennel cough also. When I gave Caleb the Amoxicillin I could see a difference within three days. He is doing much better, but he still have a slight cough which we are now working on. Thank you from Caleb's mom, B. Jefferson 09/30/2014
does the job Max (40lbs) had a gum infection, the Amoxicillin knocked it right out. Max is doing great, he's 16 years old. His breath is better and the infection is gone. 01/13/2013
My cat (over 12 years old) does extremely well with this. He is taking it due to the fact that he has a tremendous amount of mucus and it does help to clear it up - which means he does not sneeze mucus all over the place and more importantly, HE CAN BREATHE AND SMELL HIS FOOD. His appetite is great now. 12/02/2012
I have been giving this to my Great Dane now for 4 days. He seems to be fine and getting better. His stool is loose but no blood or anything like that. Winston is very sensitive to most medications so I consider this a plus that he has taken this one and doing this well. 02/23/2012
Amoxicillin 100mg tabs I ordered these because it is easier to pill Roberto than to administer liquid meds. It didn't work out as hoped. After three or four days on the tabs, he regressed, with blood once again showing in his urine. I switched him back to liquid amoxicillin and he is once again on the upswing. I think he can't absorb the tablets as easily as the liquid. 08/19/2011

my dog is 110lbs and has a ear infection, what is best for this and what dose should he be given?

Answer: 
Your vet will be the one to decide the best course of treatment based on their examination
of your dog, however Clavamox is used very often for ear infections and it is stonger than
plain amoxicillin because it has 2 ingredients : Amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid.
The dose for a 110 lb dog may be 2 of the 375 mg tablets every 12 hours or
1 of the 250mg and 1 of the 375 mg tablets together every 12 hours. Again, the vet will determine the
exact dose. Perhaps he is acting funny because he feels dizzy/ light headed and not himself. Hope he gets better soon !

How long to take?

Hi - I have 100mg to be given twice a day for 14 days. Problem is, we are going away after 10 days, and I cannot ask my pet sitter to give the meds to my dog. The dog isn't good with taking meds, and only I can do it. She had 2 teeth pulled, and the meds were given "just in case". Do you think it's ok to miss the last 4 days of this?

Amoxicillin

If amoxicillin Mgs come in the 100's, how would you prescribe that if the dosage goes by 5-10 mg per pound? If I had a dog that was 20 pounds wouldn't I need 20 mg? The dosage and what the medicine comes in doesn't make sense?

Answer: 
Amoxicillin dosage is 5-10 mg per pound every 12-24 hours which would be 100mg-200mg every 12-24 hours for your 20 pound dog. Dosage varies depending on what is being treated. Consult with your veterinarian and follow his/her dosing directions on the prescription label.

Amoxicillin should not be cut or crushed. If your pet is unable to take the tablet then consider using the amoxicillin drops (Amoxi-drops).
