No, you mustn't administer the toxic phenazopyridine hydrochloride (pyridium) to cats. Either the Clavamox hasn't been given long enough, the dose isn't sufficient, bacteria are resistant to that antibiotic, or urinary stones or cancer (transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder/uretha) are present. How long has she been on that antibiotic, please?
