What is Clavamox?

Clavamox is a broad spectrum antibiotic, a combination of amoxicillin and clavulanic Acid, used for infections caused by bacteria. Clavamox requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold by the tablet. It is also available as oral drops.

For: Cats and Dogs

Clavamox
 
Alternate photos:
  Clavamox Tabs
  Clavamox Drops
Benefits:
Good for skin and soft-tissue infections such as wounds, abscesses, and cellulitis
Effective for first-time skin infections and persistent pyodermas (skin inflammation marked by pus-filled lesions)
Proven to generally be a safe anti-bacterial treatment

How it works:
Clavamox combines the broad-spectrum antibiotic activity of amoxicillin with the unique beta-lactamase inhibiting effect of clavulanic acid which makes this product effective against beta-lactamase and non-beta-lactamase producing organisms.

Cautions:
Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet experiences diarrhea that is severe and lasts longer than three days, or if it has an allergic reaction (e.g., shortness of breath; hives; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; rash, or fainting).


More Information:
Brand Name
Clavamox (Pfizer Animal Health)
Generic Name
Amoxiciilin along with Clavulanic acid.

What is the most important information I should know about Clavamox: Give all of the Clavamox that is prescribed for your pet. Symptoms may begin to improve before the infection is completely treated.

What is Clavamox: Clavamox is a broad spectrum antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body. Clavamox is a prescription medication available in four different strength tablets - 62.5mg, 125mg, 250mg, and 375mg. Clavamox is also available as drops. When mixed with 14 ml of water, each ml contains 62.5mg of Clavamox. The usual dose of Clavamox in dogs is 6.25mg/pound twice a day, and in cats it is 62.5mg (1 mL) twice a day. Clavamox can be used to treat many different types of bacterial infections such as respiratory, ear, urinary tract, and skin. Clavamox may also be used for purposes other than those listed.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Clavamox 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 liver or kidney disease. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating or if your pet could become pregnant during treatment.

How should this medication be given: Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Clavamox should be given with food. Keep water available for your pet. Give all of the Clavamox even if your pet appears to be better. Symptoms may improve before the infection is completely treated. Store tablets at room temperature. Store the drops in the refrigerator. Discard any unused drops after 10 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 Clavamox overdose may include nausea, vomiting, rash, drowsiness, hyperactivity, or kidney problems.

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

What are the possible side effects of Clavamox: Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet experiences diarrhea that is severe and lasts longer than 3 days. Stop giving Clavamox 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) Other less serious side effects such as mild diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, or yeast or fungal infection may be more likely to occur. Continue to give Clavamox 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 Clavamox: Before giving Clavamox, 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 Clavamox or you may need to have the dosage adjusted. Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with Clavamox. 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 Clavamox written for health professionals that you may read.

Feline Herpes Clavamox, along with a steroid (prednisone), helped save a local feral kitten I've been looking after. The kitten had feline herpes which when active, often constricts the cat's throat, causing a raspy-like breathing, then later can actually swell up and asphyxiate the cat. Steroids are used to treat this condition. But, along with the breathing problems, one of the cat's eyes will usually start to turn red, along with the inside vertical eye membrane. Clavamox is used for this reason, or otherwise the cat has a high chance of losing the eye. If you're a cat owner or helping feral cats, then do a simple computer search on feline herpes, and check out some of the information and images. Myself, having had cats for most of my life, I'd never heard of this disease, which can be contagious to other cats, airbourne or through physical contact. Luckily humans and dogs aren't at risk of catching this disease - as far as I know. Also, feline herpes is hereditary. This disease acts quickly and can kill a cat in as fast as a week or less. If treated in time, the disease usually will not return, unless the cat possibly goes through a high-stress situation. I hope my info is as correct as I can recall. Please do a quick search for info and educate yourself, if you're a cat lover as much as I. 05/18/2011
I have used Clavamox for years and the results have always been great. There is no stomach upset or other side effects from this drug. 02/03/2014
great product My cat is 11 years old and she was diagnosed with feline herpes when she was about 8 months old. Her symptoms include sneezing, with lots of mucous from her chronic sinusitis, and occasionally a slightly red eye. I've used many other antibiotics over the years but the Clavamox works the best. It doesn't completely rid her of symptoms but does clear it up about 80% for maybe a month when I have to repeat the cycle again. The vet said that she'll never really be cured so I guess that 80% is about as good as I'm going to get and I'm happy for that at least. She's so much happier after the treatment. As an aside, I have 2 cats, the 2nd one being a young Bengal and she has absolutely no symptoms so she hasn't contracted it from the little one. Seems as though her vaccinations are working!! Yea! I would strongly recommend Clavamox. 11/17/2013
Maybe it is the Vet Eddie had bronchitis in January and after three x-rays was given Baytril- two courses. Bill - $350.00. That seemed to take care of the bronchitis, but then he developed a sinus infection. He was prescribed another antibiotic (dont remember the name - $60.00) and then a course of 3/4 of 125 mg clavamox at @ $68.00. In early April the Vet suggested we culture the mucus. That was $300.00 and a temp antibiotic. Result is Clavamox should be the answer, but based on his weight maybe 1 & 1/2 125 mg (this time from pet meds at a more reasonable price). Seven days into this and his reverse sneezing is worse. The mucus is like rubber cement and he is miserable. Vet says a dental should fix the sinus infection. Hmm, Clavamox should work based on the culture, but will 14 days do the trick? 05/01/2013
worked quickly My corgi, Maggie, arrived in Florida after a long drive from New York with an obvious UTI. My horse Vet in Florida felt that SMZ would take care of the problem. Boy was he wrong. Within a few days she was urinating straight blood and she was very uncomfortable. Took her to our local small animal vet and it turned out that she had a bladder full of golf ball size stones and a UTI. She went on Clavamox and an SD diet. She's doing really well and hopefully her next set of xrays will show that the stones have decreased in size. I'm thankful that there was a drug that helped her so quickly and that i could order so reasonably from your company. Thanks. 01/28/2013

Answer: 
Ideally, we strive to give it every 12 hours to keep the blood level of the medication as optimal as
possible. However, realistically, we have to get to work or school. Give it as close to every 12
hours as is realistic for you in your life. Give it at 9am if you have no other options and then
try for 9pm at night.

Answer: 
Is she also drinking more than normal?

If this does not resolve itself within a couple of days after your dog is off Clavamox please contact your vet as this might be a symptom for another condition such as kidney decease, etc., etc.

Answer: 
Increased urination is not a common side effect of Clavamox, I would suggest to observe her for a few days and consult your veterinarian if condition continues or worsen.

Answer: 
Please consult with your veterinarian. Clavamox is an antibiotic medication that could be affecting your pet's natural skin flora. Your veterinarian would need to evauluate your pet to determine the underlying cause of the body odor.
