Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Q&A

My vet prescribed Clindamycin 300mg capsules for my 46lb. english bulldog. all you show is 150mg, do you have it available in 300mg dosage ?. I have a written prescription from my vet.

Asked by: Richard
Unfortunately, we only carry Clindamycin in 150 mg capsules or 25 mg tablets. You can give your dog two of the 150 mg capsules to equal the 300 mg dosage.

My 20 year old cat has 3 teeth that are  infected. The vet gave me Clindin drops and he began diarrhea on 3rd day that was a 1 mo ago.He also takes lactol-los2 times a day.He still has diarrhea, and throwing up every other day I can't seem to regulate him

Asked by: SamiesMomy
Lactulose is used as a laxative, and may need to be stopped since your cat is experiencing diarrhea. Speak with your veterinarian to determine if they want to decrease the dose of the lactulose or stop it altogether. Clindamycin drops can also cause upset stomach, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Give these drops with food to decrease these side effects.

can clindamycin for broken leg in dog cause toothache?

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?
Asked by: Connie
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.
