Overview

What is Clavamox?
Clavamox is a combination antibiotic used to treat multiple types of bacterial infections.

Who is it for?
Clavamox is for dogs and cats.

What are the benefits?

*
Considered a safe treatment against certain harmful bacteria in the body
*
Treats skin and soft wound infections such as wounds, abscesses, and cellulitis
*
Also useful for the treatment of urinary tract infections

How does Clavamox work?
Clavamox contains two active ingredients. Amoxicillin blocks the bacteria from making a cell wall (the outer protective covering of the bacteria). As a result, the bacteria usually die. It also has clavulanic acid, which may make some bacteria normally resistant to amoxicillin sensitive to that antibiotic.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
No

How is it given?
Clavamox is given orally. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Use all of the medication prescribed, even if your pet appears well. If the entire course of treatment is not given, the infection may recur or worsen.

This medication should only be given to the pet for which it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
The active ingredients are absorbed well from the digestive system and are distributed to many body tissues, making it effective against infections in multiple organs. It is active against many different types of bacteria. It is usually given two times a day for a number of days. If doses are missed or the entire treatment regimen is not completed, the infection could recur or worsen. Consult your veterinarian if the animal's condition does not improve or worsens after beginning treatment with Clavamox.

What form(s) does it come in?
Clavamox comes in oral suspension and tablet form.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian while considering Clavamox?
Talk to your veterinarian about what tests and exams may be necessary while your pet is taking Clavamox. Also discuss how long the treatment period will be and what type of outcome is expected.

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has an allergy to penicillin, or may be pregnant or is nursing, or if you intend to breed your pet.

Notify your veterinarian of any other medications or supplements your pet is taking, and also if your pet has had any reactions to previous medications.

What should I do if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule. Do not give two doses at once.

What is the most important information I should know?
Follow your veterinarian's directions and give the full course of Clavamox as prescribed. Consult your veterinarian if the animal's condition does not improve or worsens after beginning treatment with Clavamox.

Who should not take it?
Not for use in animals hypersensitive (allergic) to penicillins or beta-lactam antibiotics such as cephalosporins.

Amoxicillin crosses the placenta, and the safe use of Clavamox in pregnant or breeding animals has not been determined.

Do NOT use amoxicillin in rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters or other rodents since it will affect the normal bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract and possibly cause fatal diarrhea.

Use with caution in very small animals who may be dehydrated or have kidney or heart disorders.

What side effects may be seen when taking Clavamox?
Side effects are rare, but you may see lack of appetite, drooling, vomiting, or diarrhea.

Consult your veterinarian if you notice any of the above side effects.

If your pet experiences an allergic reaction to the medication, signs may include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, cold limbs, or coma. If you observe any of these signs, contact your veterinarian immediately.

How is it stored?
Store at room temperature (less than 75°F) in a tight, light-resistant, childproof container, protected from moisture (not in the bathroom). Once the oral suspension is reconstituted (the powder is mixed with water), store in the refrigerator and use within 10 days. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

What should I do if I know of or suspect there has been an overdose?
If you know or suspect your pet has had an overdose, contact your veterinarian immediately.

What should I avoid when giving my pet Clavamox?
Consult your veterinarian before using this product with vitamins, supplements, bacteriostatic drugs, such as erythromycin or tetracyclines, since interactions may occur.

Where is more information available?

Articles
Many pet owners believe that scratching is normal behavior for dogs. It is not. Scratching or rubbing the face or flanks, and licking at feet indicates that something is not right with your pet.
Emergency veterinary visits can be stressful for you and your pet. Here's a list of questions and topics to discuss with your veterinarian to ensure your pet is quickly on the road to recovery.
