Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I understand that you are concerned about giving additional potassium to an Addisonian patient via his antibiotic, generic clavamox.
It appears that the amount of potassium in each tablet is quite small, 0.63meq per tablet.
For example when we are supplementing potassium to raise blood levels we would give at least 2meq per 10 pounds of body weight.
I think that the amount in these tablets is small enough that this should not be a concern for your pup.
Of course you will want to monitor Jingles closely for signs of a crisis simply because he is very stressed right now from a rat bite and a possible infection.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
