How does amoxicillin work?

What is the most important thing I should know about Amoxicillin?

Amoxicillin is a prescription medication available as 100 mg and 400 mg tablets, 250 mg and 500 mg capsules. Amoxicillin Drops suspension is also available in a 15 ml bottle. The usual dose of amoxicillin in dogs and cats is 5-10 mg/lb every 12-24 hours. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet develops severe or bloody diarrhea. Give all of the amoxicillin that is prescribed for your pet, since symptoms may begin to improve before the infection is completely treated.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving amoxicillin 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 kidney disease or stomach or intestinal disease.

How should amoxicillin be given?

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Amoxicillin can be given with or without food. Give all of the amoxicillin even if your pet appears to be better. Symptoms may improve before the infection is completely treated.

What are the potential side effects of amoxicillin?

Contact your veterinarian immediately if the pet experiences severe or bloody diarrhea during treatment. Stop giving amoxicillin 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), seizures, unusual bleeding, or bruising. Other less serious side effects such as mild nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or abdominal pain, or yeast or fungal infection may be more likely to occur. Continue to give amoxicillin 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 happens if I miss giving a dose of amoxicillin?

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 my pet on amoxicillin?

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment if an overdose is suspected. Symptoms of overdose may include muscle spasms or weakness, pain or twitching, seizures, confusion, coma, or agitation.

What should I avoid while giving amoxicillin to my pet?

There are no restrictions on food or activity during treatment with amoxicillin unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.

What other drugs will affect amoxicillin?

Before giving amoxicillin, 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 amoxicillin or you may need to have the dosage adjusted. Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with amoxicillin. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over-the-counter medicines, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amoxicillin Caleb contracted kennel cough from my son's puppy Neo. After staying in the shelter for provo Neo came home with a cough, but the vet didn't tell us to keep our other dogs away from him, so all of our other dogs caught kennel cough also. When I gave Caleb the Amoxicillin I could see a difference within three days. He is doing much better, but he still have a slight cough which we are now working on. Thank you from Caleb's mom, B. Jefferson

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does the job Max (40lbs) had a gum infection, the Amoxicillin knocked it right out. Max is doing great, he's 16 years old. His breath is better and the infection is gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat (over 12 years old) does extremely well with this. He is taking it due to the fact that he has a tremendous amount of mucus and it does help to clear it up - which means he does not sneeze mucus all over the place and more importantly, HE CAN BREATHE AND SMELL HIS FOOD. His appetite is great now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have been giving this to my Great Dane now for 4 days. He seems to be fine and getting better. His stool is loose but no blood or anything like that. Winston is very sensitive to most medications so I consider this a plus that he has taken this one and doing this well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amoxicillin 100mg tabs I ordered these because it is easier to pill Roberto than to administer liquid meds. It didn't work out as hoped. After three or four days on the tabs, he regressed, with blood once again showing in his urine. I switched him back to liquid amoxicillin and he is once again on the upswing. I think he can't absorb the tablets as easily as the liquid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Note In response to Slovakian: Yes, pets can be allergic to certain medicines, too. Amoxicillin is a penicillin-based broad-spectrum antibiotic, so it is possible your pet was penicillin intolerant, just as some humans are. (This is the same medicine given to humans, btw.) This is generally an extremely safe antibiotic - unless one is allergic to the penicillin family of drugs Be sure and tell your vet about this reaction so they can flag your pets records as to this allergy.

Q&A

My dog is 7 months old with parvo he has bloody diareah vomiting he won't eat or drink is it safe to give him human amoxicillin liquid for kids? Its 250mg

Asked by: Brittany123
I would not advise giving this to your dog. You should only use prescriptions for whom they are prescribed for. Consult with your veterinarian for the right drug for your dog, as your dog may not need an antibiotic.

Side effects

Asked by: Janet
Hello Janet, Thanks for your question. Amoxicillin antibiotic is usually well tolerated. Some side effects that can happen are mild nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or abdominal pain. A yeast or fungal infection can also occur. You should contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet develops any severe or bloody diarrhea, an allergic reaction (shortness of breath, hives, swelling), seizures, or any unusual bleeding/bruising as these are serious but rare side effects. Hope this helps. Thanks, Pharmacy student intern
