Amoxicillin is an antibiotic that can be used for a variety of infections in many different species. Adverse effects with amoxicillin are not very common. Amoxicillin can cause upset stomach, vomiting, and diarrhea; so giving this medication with food may help alleviate some of the distress. Amoxicillin, however, does not need to be given with food to be efficacious.
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.
Amoxicillin is sold as an FDA approved generic drug. Brand varies from order to order and variation to variation. VetRxDirect is unable to guarantee which brand will be available at the time of order shipment.
