Amoxicillin / Clavulanic Acid Or Clavulanate Potassium

Why has my veterinarian prescribed this medicine?

Amoxicillin/Clavulanic acid is a synthetic penicillin-type antibiotic used to treat infections caused by gram positive and gram negative bacteria. This medication may be used to treat urinary tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections and periodontal disease in dogs caused by susceptible organisms. The clavulanic acid is a beta-lactamase inhibitor it has been added to the amoxicillin to protect the antibiotic from certain enzymes which may destroy the amoxicillin before it can kill the bacteria.

PET HEALTH LIBRARY
  • The Pet Health Library contains information on some of the most common medical problems of dogs and cats. This information is designed to assist pet owners in better understanding their pets' health problems.
Cat Friendly Practice
  • In the United States, there are millions more owned cats than owned dogs, yet cats visit veterinarians less frequently than dogs. A major reason is that it is very stressful to take cats to the veterinary practice and often owners believe their cat doesn't need routine check-ups for wellness and preventive care. The Cat Friendly Practice® (CFP) program, created by expert feline practitioners, provides a solution to this trend and provides an opportunity for veterinary practices to elevate care for cats and reduce the stress during the visit.
