Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never in stock My cat needs this medication monthly or he is very ill. The first order was great. They shipped before they received the prescription, awesome. Ever since they never have the liquid in stock. I have to drive 65 miles to get the medication. I will also have $5 or $10 discounts to use and imagine this meds not in stock until they expire. They did offer the capsules. Try stuffing one down a cat. That doesn't even make sense. So disappointed in 1-800-PET-MEDS:(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Clindamycin Hydrochloride side effects...

My persian cat had to have a tooth removed and the vet prescribed 1ml (or 1 full eye dropped) of this Clindamycin Hydrochloride, suppose to finish the whole bottle, 20ml bottle.. Been giving it for 12 days now, and around her eyes, she seems to be loosing the hair! It is like a bald spot now.. I am very careful with giving the meds to her.. Is this a side effect?? Or does my vet, well old one now, not have a clue!! She only weighs 6lbs... Thank you for your time!

Can I continue giving clindamycin

My dog has a heart problem and am afraid to undergo anesthesia for teeth cleaning. I have used clindamycin in the past and has worked very well but once the prescription ended, within 3 weeks, he's mouth started smelling, loss of appetite, and potentially minor pain. My question is, can I use a single dose of clindamycin every few months? Will it be safe to assume that with his bad breath not present that the infection/bacteria has reduced?
Asked by: fez
This is not recommended. It is likely your pet is experiencing oral infections due to a need for dental cleaning and poor oral health. Please contact your veterinarian to discuss if non anesthetic dental cleaning is an appropriate option for your pet.

Flush the eye with water. If it looks irritated and inflamed contact your veterinarian to see if your pet needs to be seen.

Is this the best medication for Thrush?

My Vet says that our kitten/cat has a form of "thrush" and will need this medication off/on the rest of his life when it flares up. What can you tell me about this condition and is this medication the best treatment?
Asked by: Love My Kitty
Do NOT give ANY antibiotics when treating Thrush..a FUNGAL infection. Antibiotics only kill bacteria...do NOTHING for fungus. HOWEVER...when you take antibiotics with a fungal infection, the fungus gets worse! The good bacteria is killed along with the bad, and the fungus spores grow.

can you substitute this with pill form w/o vet's OK?

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.

USE LIQUID FORM AND PLACE IN LACTOID FREE MILK. MY CAT DRINKS IT.
Answered by: ROXX
Date published: 2012-12-27

Can I administer this liquid form in another way other than directly through a syringe?

My dog would not have a problem taking this med with food. The vet did not specify whether or not it was possible. Feedback? Thank you
Asked by: Fuzzy Bear
I PUT IT IN LACTOID FREE WARM MILK AND IT DISSAPEARS IN SECONDS. THE LIQUID FORM OF COURSE. MAKE SURE YOU KEEP MEDICATION REFRIGERATED. I DIDN'T AND IT WENT BITTER AND MY CAT WOULD NOT DRINK THE MILK.
