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.
