Product information

What is Amoxicillin used for in pets?

Amoxicillin is a broad-spectrum, prescription antibiotic that is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections in both dogs and cats. Common infections that can be treated with Amoxicillin include skin, urinary tract, and respiratory infections. However, it is important to note that Amoxicillin should only be given to pets when prescribed by a veterinarian.

Can Amoxicillin for humans be taken by my dog or cat?

Yes. Amoxicillin is safe to use in both cats and dogs when given according to a veterinarian’s instructions. Veterinarians will typically determine the correct dosage and duration of treatment based on the type of infection being treated and other factors such as age, weight, and overall health condition.

What is the dosage of Amoxicillin for dogs and cats?

The dosage of Amoxicillin for dogs and cats will be based on the animal's weight, age, and overall health condition. Generally speaking, a typical dose of Amoxicillin tablets for dogs is 5-10 mg per pound, given every 12-24 hours. For cats, the dosage may vary from 10-15 mg per pound, given every 12-24 hours. You must follow the veterinarian’s instructions closely when giving Amoxicillin to your pet.

How do I give my pet Amoxicillin?

Amoxicillin can be prescribed in pill, liquid, syrup, or powder form. Depending on the type of formulation and your pet’s preferences, you may need to hide it in food or give it directly by mouth. If giving your pet a liquid medication, make sure you measure out the correct dosage carefully.

How long do antibiotics such as Amoxicillin take to work in dogs?

The specific amount of time it takes for Amoxicillin to take effect will depend on the type of infection being treated and the individual pet. Generally, Amoxicillin should start to work within 24-48 hours. You must continue to give the prescribed dose even if your pet’s symptoms improve to ensure the infection is fully cleared. Your veterinarian will be able to provide you with further guidance on how long your pet should take Amoxicillin.

What are the side effects of Amoxicillin in pets?

The side effects of Amoxicillin in pets are generally mild and may include nausea, vomiting, or diarrhoea. More rare side effects include seizures or allergic reactions. Contact your vet immediately if you notice any side effects.

Can I get Amoxicillin for dogs or cats without a prescription and over-the-counter?

No, it is illegal to obtain Amoxicillin for pets without a valid prescription from a veterinarian. Furthermore, giving your pet any medication without proper guidance and instructions can be dangerous and potentially life-threatening. Consult your vet before starting any medication regimen with your pet.

Once you get a prescription, you can purchase Amoxicillin from online pharmacies (such as HealthExpress). You can also get Amoxicillin directly from the veterinarian clinic or a high street pharmacy. However, the price of Amoxicillin may be higher in one of those places.

How do I place an order for Amoxicillin for my pet at HealthExpress?

You're already in the right place. Head to the top of the page and select the required dose and quantity. This information should be on the prescription from the vet. Once you have confirmed the delivery method and completed the payment, you will receive instructions on how to send us your pet's prescription so we can send you your pet's treatment.

How much is Amoxicillin for pets?

The cost of Amoxicillin for pets can vary depending on the formulation, dosage strength, and quantity needed. As Amoxicillin is a medicine used to treat humans as well, you can typically get it for a better price if you buy it from a pharmacy than if you get it from the vet. Online pharmacies, such as HealthExpress, advertise their prices, and you typically won't find it cheaper anywhere else. Additionally, some pet insurance providers may cover the cost of certain medications. You must do your research before making a purchase.
