Clindamycin Capsule Antibiotic for Pets

Prescription Clindamycin is effective against a range of bacteria and some protozoa that cause infections in dogs and cats. This medication is often prescribed to treat bacterial infections of the soft tissue, bone, and teeth.

  • Treats dental, soft tissue, and bone infections due to bacteria in dogs and cats
  • Effective against a variety of bacteria
  • Fights some protozoan infections
  • Easy to administer capsules in three different dosage levels

 

Veterinarians prescribe the antibiotic Clindamycin to treat a range of bacterial infections that attack bone, teeth, and soft tissue in cats and dogs. This proven antibiotic is effective because it stops bacteria from growing and reproducing so they can no longer continue to cause infection.  Clindamycin is also effective against some protozoa that cause infections in pets.  The small capsule form can be given directly or put in a treat or pill pocket. It’s available in three different dosage levels. Your pet's veterinarian will prescribe the right level for your pet. Be sure to discuss the dosing process and side effects with your pet's veterinarian. What do other pet owners think about Clindamycin Capsules? Click on the “Reviews” tab above to learn more.

 

What you should know about Clindamycin Capsules:

  • Talk to your pet's veterinarian before using this product.
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your pet more medication than directed and don’t skip doses.
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

 

For additional information about Clindamycin Capsules, click the “More Information” and “Package Insert” tabs above. 

 

Resistance is a major concern when giving antibiotics. Resistance occurs when bacteria survive and mutate and are then able to survive even after antibiotics are given. To help avoid any resistance, it is important to give antibiotics as they are prescribed for as long as they are prescribed even if your pet is looking and feeling better.

  • Q:

    Hello, My cat has been prescribed 75mg of Clinda BID for suspected toxo. If I mix the powder contents of capsule in 1ml of H2O and follow it with 5-6 ml's of H2O, will it have the same irritating effects? Also will it be absorbed the same? Thank you.
    Asked on 6/10/2015 by CatM from Mission, KS, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      To avoid throat irritation, administering the capsule whole followed by water and/or food is best. If your cat will not take the capsule, opening the capsule and administering with water can be a reasonable alternative. It is recommended to follow with at least 5 ml of water to avoid irritation of the esophagus. Using this technique should not affect the absorption of the drug. As always, review changes in drug administration with your veterinarian to ensure safe administration in your cat.

  • Q:

    Can this be used for a human tooth infection?
    Asked on 9/11/2014 by ladybug903 from Malakoff, TX, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Clindamycin is a prescription-only medication that does have an indication for use in humans and animals. Just as a veterinarian would prescribe this medication to a pet, a medical doctor or dentist would prescribe this medication to a human-patient based on a specific diagnosis, at a specific dose, on an individualized-patient basis; therefore it is important that no patient ever use any medication that is not prescribed directly to them.

  • Q:

    Is it okay to empty the capsule into my dog's food?
    Asked on 9/10/2013 by jamie

    1 answer

    • A:

      Jamie,

      Your suggestion to open the capsule and sprinkle the contents on food may be appropriate depending on the drug.  If the drug is deemed appropriate to be opened and sprinkled, one consideration is that the animal must consume the entire food contents or the amount of drug given will be unclear.  

      Clindamycin may cause irritation to the throat as well as having a bitter taste, so if capsules were to be emptied, allow access to plenty of water.

      Always review changes to drug administration with your pet's veterinarian.

      Thank you,
