What is Antirobe?

Antirobe (clindamycin) is used to treat soft tissue, dental, and bone infections caused by susceptible strains of bacteria. Antirobe requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per capsule.
For: Cats and Dogs

Benefits:
A highly effective antibiotic
Treats skin and soft tissue infections, and peritonitis
Good for treating periodontal disease: gingivitis and periodontitis
Medication is generally well tolerated by pets

How it works:
Antirobe penetrates to the source of the bacterial infection. It inhibits bacteria by suppressing protein synthesis and growth.

Cautions:
Antibiotics can cause diarrhea. If the diarrhea is watery or has blood in it, call your veterinarian. Do not use any medication to stop the diarrhea unless your veterinarian has told you to do so.


More Information:
 
Brand Name
Antirobe (Pharmacia and Upjohn), Antirobe Aquadrops (Pharmacia and Upjohn), Cleocin (Pharmacia)
Generic Name
Clindamycin (klin-da-myí-sin)

What is the most important information I should know about Antirobe: Do not use this medication if your pet is allergic to clindamycin or lincomycin (Bactramycin, L-Mycin, Lincocin). Do not give Antirobe together with erythromycin (E-Mycin, E.E.S., Ery-Tab, and others). Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease, liver disease, colitis, asthma, eczema, or allergic skin reaction. Give this medication for the entire length of time prescribed by your veterinarian. Symptoms may get better before the infection is fully treated. Antibiotics can cause diarrhea. If the diarrhea is watery or has blood in it, call your veterinarian. Do not use any medication to stop the diarrhea unless your veterinarian has told you to do so. Periodic blood testing will be necessary. Kidney and liver function may also need to be tested. Prior to any surgery on your pet, let your veterinarian know if your pet is still taking Antirobe. Antirobe is FDA-approved for use in dogs only; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to use Antirobe in cats. Antirobe is a prescription medication available as 75mg and 150mg capsules and 25mg/ml drops. The usual dose for dogs is 2.5mg-15mg/pound every 12 hours. The usual dose in cats is 5mg-15mg/pound every 24 hours.

gum infection Shadow has been on this for 4 months, he is elderly, and his liver function does not allow anesthesia for a thorough dental cleaning. The pills keep the gum infection and smelly mouth under control. This does not prevent the plaque, but is an antibiotic to control gum/dental disease. It is expensive, but w/o it we can't get within 5 feet of Shadow because of the bad mouth smell... and I'm sure he was in pain from the infection. He's happier, and I put the pill on a kibble of dog food, held on by peanut butter. No problems. 06/28/2014
Works well for inflamed gums I also believe the user with a negative review was uninformed about the product. This antibiotic will not magically clean plaque and tartar off your dog's teeth. A dental cleaning will do that. This antibiotic is used to treat periodontal disease/gingivitis, and THEN the next step would be a dental cleaning (or that first, and then antibiotics). You can take actions to keep your dog's teeth clean (antler chews, raw bones, greenies), but once you have that tartar buildup you can't just give them an antibiotic and think it will go away. 05/01/2014
Staph Infection My dog was finally prescribed this medication after all other antibiotics failed over the past year. I went to so called specialist but finally decided on the UGA Vet school. They were thorough and detailed with determining if my dog had allergies (Ga resident) or the staph infection. 11/14/2011
This is not an antibiotic used to prevent plaque or tartar. If your Dr. told you that then you need to talk with your Dr. about giving you false hope. This antibiotic is used for knocking back the overpopulation of bacteria in the mouth. Though the mouth is not a sterile environment to begin with, it does lessen the spread of potentially harmful over population of bacteria throughout the organ system. 09/02/2011
Bulldogs' dental preventative Product did absolutely nothing to inhibit plaque, tarter or bad breath as purported by the vet. Save your money (expensive product) and buy a good drinking water dental rinse. 07/13/2011
