What is Clavamox?

Clavamox is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, a combination of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid, used for infections caused by bacteria. It is available as chewable tablets or regular tablets. Clavamox is sold by the tablet, and requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

NOTE: Clavamox Drops are also available in a 15 ml bottle.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Good for skin and soft tissue infections such as wounds, abscesses, and cellulitis
  • Effective for first-time skin infections and persistent pyodermas (skin inflammation marked by pus-filled lesions)
  • Proven to generally be a safe antibacterial treatment
  • Sold per tablet

How does Clavamox work?

Clavamox combines the broad-spectrum antibiotic activity of amoxicillin with the unique beta-lactamase inhibiting effect of clavulanic acid which makes this product effective against beta-lactamase and non-beta-lactamase producing organisms.

Cautions:

Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet experiences diarrhea that is severe and lasts longer than three days, or if he or she has an allergic reaction (e.g., shortness of breath, hives, swelling of the lips, tongue, or face, rash, or fainting).

Brand Name:

Clavamox (Zoetis)

Generic Name:

Amoxicillin along with clavulanic acid.

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

Clavamox is a broad spectrum antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body. Clavamox is a prescription medication available as regular tablets or chewable tablets in four different strengths: 62.5 mg, 125 mg, 250 mg, and 375 mg. Clavamox is also available as Clavamox Drops. When mixed with 14 ml of water, each ml contains 62.5 mg of Clavamox.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Clavamox 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 liver or kidney disease. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating or if your pet could become pregnant during treatment.

How should Clavamox be given?

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Clavamox should be given with food. Keep water available for your pet. The usual dose of Clavamox in dogs is 6.25 mg/lb of dog's body weight twice a day, and in cats it is 62.5 mg (1 ml) twice a day. Clavamox can be used to treat many different types of bacterial infections such as respiratory, ear, urinary tract, and skin. Clavamox may also be used for purposes other than those listed. Give all of the Clavamox that is prescribed for your pet. Symptoms may improve before the infection is completely treated.

What are the potential side effects of Clavamox?

Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet experiences diarrhea that is severe and lasts longer than 3 days. Stop giving Clavamox 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). Other less serious side effects such as mild diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, or yeast or fungal infection may be more likely to occur. Continue to give Clavamox 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 Clavamox?

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 Clavamox?

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment if an overdose is suspected. Symptoms of Clavamox overdose may include nausea, vomiting, rash, drowsiness, hyperactivity, or kidney problems.

What should I avoid while giving Clavamox to my pet?

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

What other drugs will affect Clavamox?

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

Customer Reviews
Clavamox is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder Med at a Great Price! My Beagle suffers from sinus infections, this product works perfectly to clear them up. MUCH less expensive on this site than through my vet, who I love dearly, but see much to often. Needless to say, getting the meds here saves me about half of what I'd pay at my vets office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always gets the job done My dog gets UTIs a lot. I have used a generic medication for them and while it clears up the infection and is much less expensive, it also takes longer for the medicine to work and the UTI tends to come back quickly. With Clavamox, I see an improvement after 2 pills and it seems to kill the infection for much longer. It is more expensive but it just works faster and longer which ends up saving me a few dollars in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing antibiotic! I highly recommend this antibiotic to any one that has to absolutely-positively needs to rid their animal, <whether cat or dog>, of any nasty- "ooey-gooeyies." I had two experiences with this this pill. First, was for a major surgery for my tabby cat, Pippen, where he was recovering and on Clavamox for several weeks. I believe the quality of this rx, helped minimize down time for his recovery. He was back to normal in no time. The second was for my elderly rescue, Chula, whom I inherited a lot of malnutrition problems, <due to prior neglect> Her tummy was a size of a basketball, which earned her the nickname " HeffeLump", Well after testing she was found to have severe liver infection and was 800 over 120, so in comes Clavamox. She has been on the pill fro appx 2 months and her tummy has gone down 3/4ths already. Clavamox is not he cheapest pill, at 0.89$++ per pill, but the first experience w Pip , made me go with it again. I highly recommend this pill. It is worth the extra$$$

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I had gotten this from our vet and she had to use it three times and still didn't get rid of it. She has herpies. It also was cheaper at the vet 24.50 here it's 29.50 plus 9 dollars in shipping. I went back to the vet and she gave us Baytril and that seemed to work much better. It was liquid and chicken flavored here they have the tablets which is ok too and this is cheaper on here to get.

Hello, I took my cat Missy to my veterinary today, because she was tearing herself apart scratching, she was diagnosed with an infection, due to fleas, She gave me Clavamox, I started the treatment after, she's calmer now, is that a good sign

Asked by: mcsteve
Yes, the change in your cat's behavior is a good sign. Decreased scratching and irritability are likely signs that the antibiotic is taking effect.

What are the inactive ingredients in the drops? &nbsp;We have a diabetic cat who cannot have sugars.

Asked by: Stephanie
Clavamox (the liquid form contains sugar) which causes the BG to rise and also causes nausea. Please consult with your veterinarian so he/she can prescribe the appropriate antibiotic for your furry baby.

I have a 1lb kitten with a uri so would I still give him 1ml clavomax drops twice a day? I understand you are not my vet and not liable The directions say all weights without any distinction. It is already mixed with 14ml of water so it is 62.5mg/ml.&nbsp;

Asked by: LindaH
Your veterinarian will determine the appropriate dose for your pet's infection.

30 minutes after giving the tablet to my cat he threw up or spat up. How can I tell if he got the medicine or should I inform my vet that the first dose made him sick. He did get his rabbies shot 5 hrs prior.

Asked by: Nickelmomma
You may want to inform your veterinarian about that.

The description says these are &quot;chewable&quot; tablets. Are they flavored? I have a Beagle and believe it or not, if it doesn't taste good he won't eat it. Been putting them in pill pockets but if I don't need to that would be fantastic.

Asked by: Beagles Rule
Thank you for your question. Clavamox (Augmentin) is known for its &quot;bubble-gum&quot; type of flavoring. It is possible that your beagle may eat it anyways when mixed with his food since it should be given with food.

Is liquid Clavamox effective if it is mixed with chicken broth (already constituted with 14 ') ml of water but the dog is refusing to allow the syringe in her mouth)?

Asked by: David
If you mix the Clavamox with more liquid (the chicken broth) it will dilute the medication and it will not be as effective.

Hot spot on dogs cheek, its very wet. I have clipped the hair back and cleaning with antibacterial was need an antibiotic to clear up. Which one pleas

Asked by: carole
Thank you for your question. Antibiotics cannot be purchased without a veterinarians prescription. The medication must be prescribed by the veterinarian. We do offer non-prescription products that assist in soothing the hotspots. You may find this link helpful https://www.1800petmeds.com/education/treating-skin-hot-spots-pets-9.htm.
