Product information

What is Clindamycin used for in pets?

Clindamycin is an antibiotic medication that can treat bacterial infections in animals. It has been known to be effective against wounds, pyoderma, abscesses, bone and tooth issues related to bacteria, as well as toxoplasmosis. Clindamycin works primarily by stopping the growth of bacteria, but in some cases, it can kill the bacteria altogether.

Is Clindamycin for dogs the same as for humans?

Clindamycin is a prescription-only medication licensed for human use but is also commonly prescribed to dogs and cats. It must only be given to your pet if advised to by your vet, and you must follow their dosage instructions.

Is Clindamycin the same medication as Antirobe?

Antirobe is a brand-name oral antibiotic prescribed for a range of bacterial infections in cats and dogs only. It contains the active ingredient clindamycin, which is the same as that used in the generic Clindamycin. As Clindamycin 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 advertise their prices and you typically won't find it cheaper than from an online provider, such as HealthExpress.

What is the difference between Clindamycin and Amoxicillin for dogs and cats?

Clindamycin and Amoxicillin are two different antibiotics used to treat bacterial infections in pets. Clindamycin is a lincosamide antibiotic, while Amoxicillin is a penicillin-type antibiotic. Both antibiotics are effective but may be used to treat different infections. Consult your veterinarian and they will prescribe the antibiotic that would be best for your pet's specific condition.

What is the dosage of Clindamycin for dogs and cats?

The exact dosage of Clindamycin your pet will need will depend on the type and severity of the infection, as well as their size and age. Generally speaking, cats may require between 5-15mg per pound twice daily. The dose is usually higher for dogs, ranging from 5-20mg per pound twice daily. Follow your vet's instructions carefully, and do not exceed the recommended dosages.

How do I give my pet Clindamycin?

Clindamycin is available in both tablet and injection form. If your pet is prescribed tablets, you can give them either whole or crushed up in their food. It's important to ensure that your pet swallows the medication, as spitting it out will mean it isn't administered properly.

You should always follow your vet's instructions when it comes to giving Clindamycin to your pet. If you're unsure how to administer it correctly, don't hesitate to contact your vet for clarification or advice.

What are the side effects of Clindamycin in pets?

Although Clindamycin is generally a safe and effective option for treating bacterial infections in pets, it is important to know the potential side effects. Common side effects include vomiting, diarrhoea, weight loss, lack of appetite, lethargy and itching. If these side effects become severe or your pet experiences any signs of an allergic reaction, you should contact your vet immediately.

It is also important to note that Clindamycin can interact with certain medications, including antacids and supplements. Before giving your pet any medication or supplements, check with your vet if whether its safe to take with Clindamycin.

Can you buy Clindamycin for pets online?

Yes, Clindamycin for pets is available online if you have a valid veterinary prescription. However, only give Clindamycin to your pet if your vet has advised you. When buying Clindamycin for pets online, always purchase from a reputable company.
