Clavamox for Dogs

What is clavamox for dogs?

If a dog contracts a bacterial infection it is likely that the dog may need antibiotics to help the dog overcome the sickness. Clavamox is normally prescribed to dogs in either a liquid or tablet form, in which both are given by mouth. In some cases you may have to take the dog to a veterinary to get Clavamox prescribed. Clavamox is actually two different medications that are mixed together to make one medicine. The two medicines that are mixed together are amoxicillin and clavulanic acid; this may be important for one to know if their dog is allergic to either medications. The medicine amoxicillin is usually a common antibiotic to help fight infections; on the other hand Clavulanic acid can help breakdown enzymes.

What could cause a mini dachshund that is on clavamox and rimadyl to have weak, wobbly back legs, however the dog was taken off the medication and the symptoms have got worse?

In some cases dachshund dogs are likely to have some type of back problems. The most common back problem seen is dachshund dogs is invertebral disc disease. A dog that has this disease can either have vertebrae thickening, changing in the size of vertebrae’s, or damage to the spinal cord. In many cases this disease can be very serious; this disease can even have an end result of paralysis. If the vet took the dog off the medications then it may be possible that the medicines are not useful.

What can someone do if they accidently gave their dog clavamox and azilect (a Parkinson’s pill)?

There are a few things that can be done for a dog that has been accidently given these two medications. One thing that you may want to do is take the dog to the vet for a complete check up and monitoring. Azilect may make the dog very sick, with symptoms from mild to severe upset stomach or even central nervous damage. Now, if this dose was given in the last 30 minutes or so you may try making the dog vomit. The most common way for make a dog vomit is by orally giving the dog hydrogen peroxide. The usual dosage is about 5ml for every 5 pounds the dog weights, most vets will recommend you to not give over 3 tablespoons at a time. Normally you can give this dose again in about 10 minutes if it was not successful the first time.

Is there any other medication that can be given to a dog with a sinus infection other than clavamox?

There are several different antibiotics on the market that can help with sinus infections ranging from mild to severe infections. One of the antibiotics that are normally a good choice is Enrofloxacin; this medication is usually prescribed to be given once a day. There is a test that is done on nasal discharge, so that the vet knows which medicine may help the dog the best.

What can be done for a dog on clavamox that is constipated?

In some cases, individual may try giving their dog milk to help with the constipation; the basis for this is that many dogs are lactose intolerant which means that the milk may act as a laxative. Laxatives are commonly used to help pass a bowel movement. There also is an item called laxatone it is a hairball product; this product normally has petroleum in it which may allow the dog to have an easier time passing a bowel movement.

Recent Clavamox Questions

  • My 11 yr old Yorkie Maddie just had surgery for open pyometra

    My 11 yr old Yorkie Maddie just had surgery for open pyometra on Tues. She made it through surgery okay. She is eating small amounts of food and drinking some water. She is urinating every couple of hrs..which is okay but she squats like 15 times in doing so. She is also in her heat cycle. Had her to the vet today and he checked red bld count which was normal and her temp. was fine. She is on Clavamox and Tramadol. She is emptying her bladder but keeps squatting. He also extracted urine from her bladder before surgery and he said it lookd fine..not infected. Why would she squat so many times and try to urinate??
  • My 9.5 yr pom was diagnosed with renal failure Friday.

    My pom was diagnosed with renal failure Fri. His BUN is 108, Phos 8.3 and the creatinine level was to high to register. No urinalysis was done. I am wondering from information found online at various resources, could it be possible that he has just a UTI or some other form of Kindey problem? My vet put him on Renavast, 100 ml subQ fluids daily and K/D and has recommended Nutramax fish oil today. He is also now anemic and diabetic (GLU 224, RBC 2.92, HCT19.1, HGB 7.1, AMYL 1762 and LIPA 1045). I have read that without doing an urinalysis, that the complete kidney workup was not done and therefore it could be just an UTI and want to help clear up any misconceptions my husband and I have. Any assistance in this would be greatly appreciated.  And can I try an antibiotic?

  • My vet gave me some antiobiotics with some pain medication

    My vet gave me some antiobiotics with some pain medication mixed in it. The written directions say 1cc twice a day. They said it was on the dropper. It only has mL. I looked at 1 mL on the dropper and it is the full dropped. I dont want to over medicate her. What do i do?
