I need help!!! My 16 year old Bengal cat, Mr. Jinx has just been.diagnosed with high creatinine. My vet put him on this antibiotic for 10 days! I am not reading anything about renal disease helped by clindamycin. Any info that would help, would be appreciated!! 03/29/2011
life saving med. Zoey is a beautiful blk oriental...she began loosing weight... her mouth swelled..the vet said she could see what appeared to be a tumor..drooling w a lump under her mouth... I don't give up easy on my cats..so she prescribed Clavomox.. What a horrible med that was for Zoey...she was sick from it and wouldn't eat and just lay...in her bed..not moving..I was sure this was the end for my baby...I began giving her fluids because she wouldn't eat or drink... Ea day I feared opening up her room..where she had space from my other cats..eating her food... One morning..while still on Clavomox... I couldn't believe my eyes... it looked like a CSI crime scene...blood everywhere..from her nose and mouth.. her water was pure blood...That is when I said..no more of that Clavomox... I decided to look up 1800pet meds...and her aiment and what they suggest... Which was Clindamycen drops.. I had nothing to loose at this point.. even though the vet couldn't believe it was Clavomox...I convinced her to give me clindamycin... and refused to use the other again...She gave in...& within two days.. Zoey began to raise from the dead...this is not joke.. I can't believe she survived the blood incident..she began to drink...eat a little... another problem I had is she is diabetic... I couldn't give her shots if she didn't eat.. It was like nothing ever happened to her... I still can't believe it...I thank clindamycin and all the people who wrote comments which made me insist on trying this...She does still have flare ups... about every 10 to 14 days...that is because her case was so bad and had gone on to long... When she stops eating and drinking I go right back to the drops and fluids... within 48 hrs... she is once again...drinking and eating on her own...I love this med...she never got sick from it either...she has a sensitive stomach...I give her stomach pills for cats ...like us humans use for acid problems.. I can't say enough wonderful things about this med... She just had her 14th birthday at Christmas... and hears hoping for many more... 01/06/2013
Good Choice by my vet. My 16 yr. old Daschand was very weak, sleeping all the time, I thought it was old age, took her to our vet, and he said my dog had an infection in the gums and prescribed Clindamycin Drops, Today is her 6th day of these drops and starting today she has come up so alive and barking and eating twice a day all her food and following me all around the house all day long, which is so exciting for me because I can tell that she feels alot better. 03/22/2011
A miracle product to treat my cat with a limp tail In December 2010, I noticed that my young (10 mos) foster cat's tail was completely limp, flacid, with no movement or feeling. I thought he may have broken it while playing with another cat. However, within another week, his back legs had begun to deterioriate, he was having trouble walking and within a couple of days he had more trouble walking, so much so that we confined him to the bathroom so he could eat and make it to the litterbox. Our normal vet took an xray and there was no sign of a break. We had discussed amputating the tail until his legs began showing symptoms as well. I took him to see a wonderful specialty vet who was also a neurologist and he recommended that he take this - 1mm, 2 times a day to treat a possible case of toxoplasmosis. He said that if this was the cause, in 7-10 days he should show some sign of improvement. To my husband and I's total surprise, he did improve. This has been a month and a half ago and since that time, his legs have completely regained their function and his tail has partially regained function. If your cat has these symptoms, I *HIGHLY* recommend you ask your vet about this protocol. I thought this wonderful cat's outlook was very bleak. I would also mention that this particular cat has had health problems his whole life, including sinus, respiratory problems and has received a wide array of medication. The specialist thinks that the toxoplasmosis is probably a separate issue, but perhaps affected by some related illness. 02/13/2011
helps my 16yr old when ever i see my kitty loosing weight, her fur a little thinner and not as spry as normally I give her a few doses of this medicine, feed her a little more and she will feel and look better 03/07/2010

Answer: 
Your veterinarian will need to be contacted in order to switch the capsules to the liquid. We carry generic clindamycin 150mg and brand name Antirobe 75mg (clindamycin 75mg). A generic for the Antirobe 75mg capsules exists, however, we do not stock that item.

I tried pill form before and found it difficult, but administering liquid to my cat is worse. Either way it takes two people, but I was able to get the pill in his mouth.

Answer: 
Clindamycin Drops contains 25mg in each ml. Clindamycin tablets are available in a 25mg strength. I know of no reason why the 25mg tablet cannot be used instead of 25mg/ml liquid.
