Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product My cat is 11 years old and she was diagnosed with feline herpes when she was about 8 months old. Her symptoms include sneezing, with lots of mucous from her chronic sinusitis, and occasionally a slightly red eye. I've used many other antibiotics over the years but the Clavamox works the best. It doesn't completely rid her of symptoms but does clear it up about 80% for maybe a month when I have to repeat the cycle again. The vet said that she'll never really be cured so I guess that 80% is about as good as I'm going to get and I'm happy for that at least. She's so much happier after the treatment. As an aside, I have 2 cats, the 2nd one being a young Bengal and she has absolutely no symptoms so she hasn't contracted it from the little one. Seems as though her vaccinations are working!! Yea! I would strongly recommend Clavamox.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maybe it is the Vet Eddie had bronchitis in January and after three x-rays was given Baytril- two courses. Bill - $350.00. That seemed to take care of the bronchitis, but then he developed a sinus infection. He was prescribed another antibiotic (dont remember the name - $60.00) and then a course of 3/4 of 125 mg clavamox at @ $68.00. In early April the Vet suggested we culture the mucus. That was $300.00 and a temp antibiotic. Result is Clavamox should be the answer, but based on his weight maybe 1 & 1/2 125 mg (this time from pet meds at a more reasonable price). Seven days into this and his reverse sneezing is worse. The mucus is like rubber cement and he is miserable. Vet says a dental should fix the sinus infection. Hmm, Clavamox should work based on the culture, but will 14 days do the trick?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked quickly My corgi, Maggie, arrived in Florida after a long drive from New York with an obvious UTI. My horse Vet in Florida felt that SMZ would take care of the problem. Boy was he wrong. Within a few days she was urinating straight blood and she was very uncomfortable. Took her to our local small animal vet and it turned out that she had a bladder full of golf ball size stones and a UTI. She went on Clavamox and an SD diet. She's doing really well and hopefully her next set of xrays will show that the stones have decreased in size. I'm thankful that there was a drug that helped her so quickly and that i could order so reasonably from your company. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was a miracle! My dog was misdiagnosed by my normal vet as having allergies when in fact he had three bacterial infections. By the time I could see he was deteriorating after trusting my normal vet, he visited another vet who put him on clavamox. This has cured him and he is back to his normal self. I consider it to be the miracle he needed along with his new vet!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Service, Good Price, Poor Med Clavamox may be the best antibiotic around, but my animals will never know, because they can't keep it down. We have no trouble giving the pills, but no additive (such as ham or cheese) (or nothing) works to keep the med inside. It may be in one minute or within five, it still comes up. So here I am with 16 Clavamox pills useless to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another choice... Colloida Silver I have used Clavamox for several years. When one of my 3 boys (male cats) gets sick I start the Clavamox. The Vet has been cooperative enough to allow me to keep a couple doses of it (unmixed) on my shelf. It has been effective every time. One of the guys likes to get into fights and gets bit. The serious bites usually get infected and the Clavamox gets the infection cleared up in short order. I would like to call your attention to another thing that works. Colloidal Silver..... Colloidal silver was well known for it's antibiotic properties for hundreds and hundreds of years before antibiotics elbowed it out 50 + years ago. Colloidal Silver is making a come back outside the field of traditional medicine. Colloidal Silver does work. Many times it works where other antibiotics fail. Research "Colloidal Silver" on Google. You will be amazed at how many articles are there and how many people are giving it to their pets to keep them healthy. Also information on how to make it at home. I have read scientific articles that claim that adding Colloidal Silver to the regular antibiotic treatment improved the results. Read the ariticles and you be the judge. Donnie

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Clavamox My kitty Molly has been on this a few times. The liquid causes her to foam at the mouth and gag. She even does it when I go to get her and not give it to her. It is NOT the best for my cat at all. Like Pavlovs dog she responds like she hates it. without even getting it .She had an eye infection but we had to stop this. I used golden seal wash and healed it better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from life saver My cat is 12 and he was near death when I brought him to the vet. He was healthy one day and the next he could not hardly walk , he wouldn't eat and his stomach was untouchable.I used clavamox for 10 days twice a day and he is healthy as a kitten. He is running and playing with his girls. . I would highly recommend this drug for crystals that older male cats get. They can die within 24 hours if not detected so you have to keep an eye on them as soon as they have trouble urinating and their stomachs swell you have to get them on it right away. Or have the pills or drops on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fix My Westie is 11 years old and about a year ago developed an infection on two places on her lower lip where there is a fold. I took her to the vet who gave her Clavamox, but when the dose ended it would always return. After asking the vet about keeping her on a low dose, we finally agreed to try it. And, it has worked beautifully. She takes 1/2 a pill each day and she has had no more trouble with the infection.

After 2 doses of benadryl she still had lumps and bumps which was spreading all down neck and body. I was concern she would have trouble breathing (even thought she could eat and drink fine) I was concerned. 3 rd dose of benadryl and a restless night sleep we woke up with them slowly going down. By day 3 they were 95% gone. The Vet said sometimes it can take that long for an reaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feline Herpes Clavamox, along with a steroid (prednisone), helped save a local feral kitten I've been looking after. The kitten had feline herpes which when active, often constricts the cat's throat, causing a raspy-like breathing, then later can actually swell up and asphyxiate the cat. Steroids are used to treat this condition. But, along with the breathing problems, one of the cat's eyes will usually start to turn red, along with the inside vertical eye membrane. Clavamox is used for this reason, or otherwise the cat has a high chance of losing the eye. If you're a cat owner or helping feral cats, then do a simple computer search on feline herpes, and check out some of the information and images. Myself, having had cats for most of my life, I'd never heard of this disease, which can be contagious to other cats, airbourne or through physical contact. Luckily humans and dogs aren't at risk of catching this disease - as far as I know. Also, feline herpes is hereditary. This disease acts quickly and can kill a cat in as fast as a week or less. If treated in time, the disease usually will not return, unless the cat possibly goes through a high-stress situation. I hope my info is as correct as I can recall. Please do a quick search for info and educate yourself, if you're a cat lover as much as I.

He sneezes constantly and gets extremely congested. The liquid Clavamox is easy to administer--he doesn't want to take it, but doesn't fight very hard. It is also very effective--usually 3 -4 days into the treatment his symptoms clear up completely. Unfortunately, he has to be on 3 -4 courses of it every year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clavamox I have a 14 year old Welsh Terrier who was urinating blood 1 year ago February. She was diagnosed with bladder cancer. She was prescribed Clavamox and Tremadol over a year ago, with the expectation of keeping her as comfortable as possible for what ever time she had left. She has been to Fla with me for the winter and back and is currently happy and playful at times and sleeps more than usual, but is definitely still with me and living a happy healthy life in part anyway, because of the clavamox. She stopped having the bleeding and urgent feeling of having to urinate. She is happy and the dog we all have known for 14 year with the normal limitations of a 14 year old dog.
