When your cat or dog has a flesh wound or skin infection, you need to get fast, effective treatment to stop the infection from worsening or spreading. Prescription Clavamox is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that works quickly to control infection.
Clavamox is a safe, effective, oral antibiotic prescribed by veterinarians for treating a range of bacterial infections. This medication contains amoxicillin, a powerful penicillin-type antibiotic, and clavulanic acid, which is effective against bacteria that are normally resistant to amoxicillin. Clavamox tablets or drops can be used by both cats and dogs and is available in different strengths.

Q:Why won't your site let me order my dog's Clavamox? I have entered my vet's info and have a prescription.
A:Please contact customer service with any ordering issues and they will be able to help you.
Q:my dog is in heat about ready to come off clavamix,is it safe to get pregnant?
Q:what mg would you recommend for an 8 lb. dog?
A:The recommended dosage in dogs by the manufacturer is 6.25mg per pound of body weight twice daily. A dose for an 8-pound dog is around 50 mg twice daily and the duration of use will depend on the type and severity of the infection. Certain infections will require higher doses than the recommended amount and this will be determined and monitored by your veterinarian.
Q:can amoxicillin trihydrate for people be used in place of clavamox
A:Clavamox is a combination of amoxicillin and clavulanate potassium. The addition of clavulanate potassium reduces the resistance of bacteria to amoxicillin alone. Substituting amoxicillin in place of the prescribed Clavamox may not clear the infection and could lead to a more severe infection. Please discuss any concerns with Clavamox with your veterinarian prior to substituting amoxicillin to ensure the best outcomes for your pet.
