Product Information

Clavamox is an antibiotic for dogs and cats. This antibiotic has broad-spectrum activity and can be used to treat many infections including those that occur in soft tissues and skin.

What is Clavamox? Clavamox is a combination antibiotic that contains amoxicillin and clavulanic acid. Veterinarians commonly prescribe Clavamox when your pet suffers from infection. This antibiotic is often a good choice for problems such as wounds, abscesses, respiratory infections, and urinary infections.

Clavamox is formulated for: dogs and cats.

What are the benefits of Clavamox? Clavamox is a combination antibiotic that helps fight against gram-negative, gram-positive, and some anaerobic bacteria. It comes in liquid and tablet formulations so you and your veterinarian can choose what is best for your pet. Clavamox is FDA approved and generally safe to use.

How does Clavamox work? Clavamox contains amoxicillin and clavulanic acid which has a unique beta-lactamase inhibiting effect. Both of these medications work together to fight against beta-lactamase and non-beta-lactamase producing organisms which expands the spectrum of bacteria Clavamox can eliminate.

How is Clavamox administered? This medication is given orally (by mouth). Veterinarians typically prescribe this antibiotic twice daily but you should follow your veterinarian’s instructions. Always complete the entire course of medication even if your pet begins to feel better. Clavamox should only be given to the pet that is prescribed for. Do not give two doses at one time.

What results can I expect? The active ingredients are absorbed well from the digestive tract and are distributed to infected body tissues. Your pet’s infection should improve and he/she should start to feel better.

What Form(s) does Clavamox come in? Clavamox is available as a tablet and as a liquid.

Common Brand Name: Clavamox (Pfizer Animal Health)

Generic Name: Amoxicillin-potassium clavulanate (Common Drug Name)

Uses: Clavamox is used to treat susceptible bacteria that cause infections in regions of the body including the skin, respiratory tract, bone, and mouth. Clavamox can also be effective in treating infected wounds. Clavamox is not a treatment for viral or parasitic infections.

Dose and Administration: Generally, Clavamox is given twice daily. The exact dose and duration of treatment will be determined by your veterinarian so follow his/her instructions. The duration of administration depends on the condition being treated, response to the medication and the development of any adverse effects. Always complete the prescription unless specifically directed by your veterinarian. Even if your pet feels better, the entire treatment plan should be completed to prevent relapse or prevent the development of resistance. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is time for the next dose, skip the one you missed. Do not double dose.

Possible Side Effects: Clavamox is generally safe. The most common side effects are gastrointestinal in nature and include vomiting, diarrhea, and lack of appetite. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include shortness of breath, hives, swelling of the lips, tongue, or face, rash, or collapse. Other less serious side effect such as a yeast or fungal infection may be more likely to occur. Contact your veterinarian immediately if any unusual symptoms develop while your pet is taking Clavamox.



Precautions: Do not give Clavamox to animals who are hypersensitive (allergic) to penicillins or beta-lactam antibiotics such as cephalosporins. Amoxicillin can cross the placenta so 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. Clavamox should be used with caution in very small animals that may be dehydrated or have kidney or heart disorders.

Drug and Food Interactions: Tell your veterinarian about any vitamins, supplements, or medications your pet is taking before starting Clavamox. Interactions may occur with bacteriostatic drugs such as erythromycin or tetracyclines.

Storage: Clavamox tablets can be stored at room temperature in a tight, light-resistant, childproof container. Once the oral suspension is reconstituted (the powder is mixed with water), it should be stored in the refrigerator and used within 10 days. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

A prescription from your veterinarian is required to purchase Clavamox.
