My 20 year old cat has 3 teeth that are  infected. The vet gave me Clindin drops and he began diarrhea on 3rd day that was a 1 mo ago.He also takes lactol-los2 times a day.He still has diarrhea, and throwing up every other day I can't seem to regulate him

Asked by: SamiesMomy
Lactulose is used as a laxative, and may need to be stopped since your cat is experiencing diarrhea. Speak with your veterinarian to determine if they want to decrease the dose of the lactulose or stop it altogether. Clindamycin drops can also cause upset stomach, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Give these drops with food to decrease these side effects.

can clindamycin for broken leg in dog cause toothache?

My vet recommended that I give my 35 lb. dog (not sure of exact age, but he's getting old/gray) this drug to help his broken femur heal better (he's still not using it). I started the first dose today and he appears to have a toothache now and is sleepy/sad. Could this drug be healing or hurting a bad tooth as well? Also, daily dose given is 300 mg. Is this too much for this size dog?
Asked by: Connie
That dose is fine for a 35 pound dog. Its hard to say if the tooth ache and sleepiness could be caused by the clindamycin, these are not common side effects, but you should always talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that is unusual or especially bothersome to your pet.

Can we give our cat Clindamycin with tobramycin and Atropine??

Our cat has an eye infection and the vet gave us a pain killer and a antibiotic in drops for him. He recommended oral pain killers and antibiotics but we don't know if we should stick to the drops like he gave us or maybe give him both antibiotics or just the oral antibiotics and we also don't know how the oral antibiotics will react with the painkiller. In that note this cat also has FIV so his Kidneys are not working as they should and he also has a heart murmur.

You will need to discuss this issue with your veterinarian, he will have to determine the appropriate treatment based on the cat's overall health at the time.

can humans take the same pill for infection?

Asked by: lacey
Lacey, Thank-you for submitting your question. Both humans and animals are prescribed Clindamycin for various infections. There are many types of infections caused by infinite number of bacteria species. Clindamycin may be appropriate to use depending on type and severity of infection as well as what the bacteria is resistant to. A veterinarian can determine if it is appropriate to use in your pet, as a medical healthcare professional can determine it’s appropriate use of infection in humans. Hope this helps, have a great day! Jessica A. Pharmacy Intern 1800PetMeds
