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.
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.
