This product has done wonders for Sparkle's teeth. She is now going back to her dentist, but the bleeding has stopped and once the dentist does her job, she ought to be fine. I use this product one week out of the month to maintain healthy teeth. Yes, we recommend highly. 02/08/2013
cyst on back It helped her greatly. I am so grateful for immediate attention by Pet Meds and my Vet. Dr. Solomon. 05/19/2012
Very Effective!! My older dog has alot of dental issues. Had teeth cleaned etc... but ulcers in mouth came back. This product controls the problem so no more sore,infected gums. 07/21/2009
works fast and easy My pooch had a severe tooth infection which led to a sinus infection and she was sneezing and her nose constantly dripped a long strand of green mucus. It was horrible, I took her to the vet and he put her on the clindamycin. Within two to three days she was completely cleared up. She once again is huggable and no more sneezing or drippy mucus. 08/06/2008

My vet recommended that I give my 35 lb. dog (not sure of exact age, but he's getting old/gray) this drug to help his broken femur heal better (he's still not using it). I started the first dose today and he appears to have a toothache now and is sleepy/sad. Could this drug be healing or hurting a bad tooth as well? Also, daily dose given is 300 mg. Is this too much for this size dog?

Answer: 
That dose is fine for a 35 pound dog. Its hard to say if the tooth ache and sleepiness could be caused by the clindamycin, these are not common side effects, but you should always talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that is unusual or especially bothersome to your pet.

Our cat has an eye infection and the vet gave us a pain killer and a antibiotic in drops for him. He recommended oral pain killers and antibiotics but we don't know if we should stick to the drops like he gave us or maybe give him both antibiotics or just the oral antibiotics and we also don't know how the oral antibiotics will react with the painkiller. In that note this cat also has FIV so his Kidneys are not working as they should and he also has a heart murmur.
