Our miniature Schnauzer (18 lbs) is on 2 25mg tabs of Clindamycin

This answer was rated:

Our miniature Schnauzer (18 lbs) is on 2 25mg tabs of Clindamycin twice a day with food since wednesday in preparation for getting her teeth cleaned this coming Thursday. Tonight she was accidentally given a double dose. Can I assume she will be ok but that we might see some vomiting and diarrhea? Should we resume the normal dose in the morning with her food?
Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been a veterinary nurse for 26 years.Thank you for allowing me to assist you today.

I am sorry to hear Sophie has you worried.

You are absolutely correct in assuming she will be fine other then some possible vomiting.

It doubt this will cause diarrhea but it is possible. I would try not to worry she should be just fine.

I hope this helps ease your mind. Please reply back if you have additional questions or concerns and I will be happy to continue.
