Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 8 months ago.

Hi, Robert. Unfortunately, we cannot write prescriptions through the website. The veterinary licensing boards require that a valid client-patient relationship occur which involves a veterinarian examining a pet in person.

If the mother has developed mastitis, the recommendation is to remove the young and continue to bottle raise them. The mother should not be allowed to nurse any further and she should be placed on a strict antibiotic regimen.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.

Did my response help to answer all of the questions that you had? If questions remain, please reply and let me know how I can assist.

What name antibiotics is best.
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 8 months ago.

Clavamox is the one most commonly used in my professional experience. It's often easy to dose and well tolerated by the queen. Again, remember that the kittens need to be removed from the mother and hand raised.

Checking in, Robert. How is Mama kitty doing?
