Rated 5 out of 5 by from HAS WORKED EVERYTIME Whenever our Female Newfoundland has had a "Urinary Track Infection" it's very important to treat the infection immediately. She's my shadow and prefers to be in the house most of the time. Just like a big bear rug. Even though she's a "senior" she has never relieved herself in the house. She is bathed frequently but if I notice a urine odor about her, she's scheduled to see the vet as soon as possible. CLAVAMOX begins to help her within 24 hours and has always cured her of the UTI. She's feeling good as new within days but remains on the medication for a full month. It's not inexpensive BUT it works. She's 10yrs old and has only had 3 UTI's. Thankfully PedMeds is there to help keep our expenses down while giving our Newfoundlands the very best care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Godsend... I have a 20yo toy poodle whom I truly believe is only alive because of Clavamox. Well, Clavamox and peanut butter. She'll do anything for peanut butter! Her vet told me she would eventually need to be on it daily, particularly for her chronic dental/sinus issues, but other presenting problems included incontinence, difficulty breathing, signs of senility, struggles with her joints and recent cries out of the blue. I realized she must have reached the point where she needed daily doses, so I bought a large supply from Pet Meds. I hid the little pill in a scoop of peanut butter twice a day, and watched as she literally seemed to come back to life. She's no longer struggling to breathe through the dental/sinus infections, has stopped screaming, shows fewer signs of senility, and has regained control over her bladder. I do NOT like pills, but I would sincerely recommend this for anyone struggling with putting their pet down like we were. She is now back to licking us, wagging her tail, and walking! Thank you and good luck. - Renee

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Medicine for Treating Many Cat Issues I have an aging, male cat (Wynter) who will likely be on pet medications and supplements for the rest of his life. He takes vet prescribed vitamins, allergy pills, ear solutions, pain meds, and Clavomox (medicine rotation based on when his issues occur). Wynter is a loyal Clavomox user and according to my pet files, has been for using Clavomox on and off for approx. 7 years so far. When Wynter gets into a fight with other male cats and comes home wounded, my vet prescribes Clavomox to clear the infections and gradually help heal the wound inside-out. Wynter has respiratory cough & sneeze spells at different times of the year, and when they resurface, Clavomox is again prescribed by my veterinarian. Wynter sprangs or breaks a bone/limb doing whatever, and my vet prescribes Clavomox again along with other meds. It seems that Clavomox covers most pet issues. I don't know if any pain medicine is inside Clavomox but it seems to do its job treating my cat's conditions. I assume that the taste of Clavomox is obviously terrible because I have to basically fight Wynter when giving him that particular medication. I've learned to dissolve the pill and give it to him quickly in liquid form via a small medicine dispenser to make it easier on both of us (if trying this, talk to your vet about dissolving specifics). Once in the cat's system, Clavomox gradually starts to work. I'm pretty satisfied with its results. Now Clavomox has to be administered exactly as prescribed or results will likely not be seen and/or the results will only last a few days to a week (per my experience); brief results are a waste of time, energy, and money, so follow the prescription instructions. I've learned the hard way to purchase Clavomox via PetMeds versus accepting it directly from my veterinarian (per invoice comparisons). My veterinarian may or may not approve of my purchase routine, but she works with it because even she can understand that my Wynter is a costly cat! I only wish that the price of Clavomox via PetMeds would stop increasing every other quarter. It seems that each time I order a quarterly/semi-annual refill, I'm paying a few dollars more. Other than that, Clavomox is a product I'd recommend to other pet owners for treating certain pet issues (but visit and talk to your pet's veterinarian first).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clavamox My cat Chloe has a "chronic" problem. Whenever the seasons change she has a "cough" and sneezes with a lot of thick mucus and discharge from her nose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clavamox Warning - if your vet prescribes this antibiotic - make sure your dog is put on a probiotic along with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great My dog Izzy, a 13 year old pug, has been suffering from chronic ear infections pretty much since the day I got her from the pound when she was 7. I tried everything and I mean everything to help from eardrops prescribed by my vet, cleaning twice a day, and even a home made remedy recommended by a friend. I started her on 2 tabs a day for 2 weeks and have had her on 1 tab daily for a few years now. I clean her ears intermittantly but the infection is pretty much in check. I notice if I run out even for a few days, the infection comes back. It works very well. I was afraid that taking an antibiotic daily woud make the infection come back even stronger but so far no problems. Happy I found a solution!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Results. Excellent Customer Service My 11 year old Female Standard Poodle had a cancer growth on her front leg and had to have that leg removed. She has been on Clavamox for several weeks and will remain on it during her Chemo treatments. She had trouble for a while holding down her morning food until we discovered a regimin of giving her a Pepcid tablet about 30 minutes prior to her morning feeding. That stopped the vomiting completely. We have also completely changed her diet. She no longer has any wheat products or food with fillers. She is now eating natural foods and cooked quality chicken and sweet potatoes. She is given salmon (wild salmon in the can) and sardines in olive oil. She loves her new diet and she has been reenergized both physically and in spirit. Lastly, I must say that PETMEDS stepped up to assist us when we needed their help. They were terrific and as a result, they have gained a new customer who spreads the word when appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked wonders My Sammy had just recovered from total paralysis of her hips and back legs. We were told that the prognosis was not good. After two days in hospital we were almost resigned to having her put down. We went to the shelter and of course fell in love with a little Lhasa Apso and adopted her. That same day I went to visit Sammy in the hospital thinking it would be the last time I would see her. The vet tech carried her into the examination room and lay her on the table. As I was talking to Sammy and tearfully telling her what a great friend she had been, she acted like she was going to slide off the table. I picked her up and lowered her to the floor and she wobblely got up and walked around the room. I called for the vet to come in and look at her. He was amazed! Well a couple of days later we picked up the new dog and she had what we learned the next day was kennel cough. We got a script for her and treated her for the cough. In about a week Sammy got the cough. The vet gave her the same script that Love was taking. After 10 days she was no better and I took her back to the vet. He prescribed Clavomox and in about a week she was well. She is 13 1/2 years old and is bouncing around like a pup again. Thanks for a great product. Sammy and I are very grateful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast working Bought my puppy from another state and had him flown to me. Within the hour of picking him up I noticed he was lethargic and he started wheezing and made choking noises. I knew what respiratory infections sounded like in dogs so I brought him in that night to the vet, As I guessed it was a respiratory infection which was very contagious. With puppies these types of infections can be deadly. They gave me clavamox and within 24 hours he was a different puppy. It is now 4 days later and his wheezing is rare and hes very active.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product My 1 year old kitten has gotten sick pretty regularly, and our vet still doesn't know the exact problem, but on our last visit, instead of performing tests, he prescribed him 2 weeks worth of clavamox. I noticed an immediate difference! it was hard getting him to take the pill at first, but then i made it into a routine by just sticking the pill into a spoonful of his favorite soft food, and he licked it clean every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Try using yogurt with it My kitty had URD- upper respiratory disease and was put on clavamox. As with humans, any antibiotic will kill off good bacteria in the digestive tract. To combat this issue, I eat yogurt. So I gave the same treatment to my cat. She had no issues with diarhea or eating difficulties. Be sure to use plain organic yogurt if possible. Flavored isnt as good. Just a little bowl about 30 min after the dose of clavamox will do the trick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from helped but My pom was put on clavamox for a severe skin rash. It helped the rash but about a week into taking the meds he started to throw up everyday about 3 or 4 hours after his dose. He also hated the taste, we hand fed him the pills in butter, cheese, meat, anything not to fight him with taking the pills. I thought maybe the food was making him ill, so for a few days I forced the pills down his throat, still he threw up a few hours later.

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)?

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

The bottle my cat was prescribed is already liquid,  am I still supposed to add 14ml water?  They said nothing about it but I just read about it on the bottle & I just can't tell if I'm supposed add the water or if they already did at the clinic.

Asked by: Kanra
Since most pet owners do not have syringes to accurately measure out 14 ml of water, my veterinarian adds the water just before dispensing Clavamox Drops so most likely, so does your vet and you do not need to add any more water to the bottle. The bottle will not appear to be full, but it is the correct amount for proper dosing.

Can I dissolve the tablet in water to give to him

Asked by: Teepe
It is not recommended as the medication is very bitter which is why it comes as a coated tablet. Try putting the tablet in a yummy treat such as cheese, peanut butter, a piece of hot dog or liverwurst. Make several little morsels, giving your pet a couple without the pill first to get him excited, then slip the treat with the medication in and always follow with another one without the medication (they remember the last good treat most of the time, forgetting about the "odd" one with the pill in it).

Does clavamox continue to work after medication is completed?

Asked by: Jessica
Hello Jessica, Clavamox is an antibiotic used for many different infections. Your veterinarian should prescribe the right duration of treatment for whatever infection your pet may have. You should give your pet the exact amount of days prescribed even if symptoms begin to resolve. This is to ensure the entire infection is cleared. Once the Clavamox is stopped, it will be completely out of the pet's system within a day. Therefore, it does not continue to work beyond the duration. Hope this helps.

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:

Amoxicillin along with clavulanic acid.
