Helps heal your pet when bacteria strikes

Amoxicillin is a broad-spectrum penicillin antibiotic used to treat various infections caused by susceptible strains of bacteria in dogs and cats. It is a semisynthetic antibiotic with a broad spectrum of activity. It provides bactericidal activity against a wide range of common gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens. Chemically, it is D(-)--amino-p-hydroxybenzyl penicillin trihydrate.

Can Amoxicillin Be Given to Pets?
Answer

Amoxicillin is widely sold as Amoxil, Amoxi Tabs, Amoxi-Drop, Bimox, Moxatag, Novamoxin, and others. It is an aminopenicillin antibiotic, which is used to treat some kinds of bacterial infections. Typically, Amoxicillin is used in case of respiratory, urinary tract, and skin infections. In cats and dogs as well, the medication is used to treat certain bacterial infections. And at a specific dose, it can also be administered to ferrets, reptiles, and birds as off-label medication. Amoxicillin for pets is commonly administered orally in liquid suspension, capsule, tablet form. Pet parents can give the medication with or without food to the animal. However, if your pet vomits after having the medicine on an empty stomach and experiences nausea, it's better to give the medication with food the next time. The drug will often take effect quite fast within a couple of hours. While you may not notice any visible improvement, it will be noticeable after a few days of dosage.

Can a Dog Take 500mg of Amoxicillin?
Answer

Amoxicillin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that the veterinarian prescribes to treat bacterial infections. Here broad-spectrum means that the medication can treat a wide array of bacteria, including gram-negative and -positive bacteria. The medicine works effectively by attacking the bacteria's cell wall formation, and thus it not only kills bacteria but also prevents new growth. Amoxicillin is a potent medication and should be administered strictly according to the veterinarian's instructions. In dogs, the drug is administered according to the type of infection your dog is suffering from and the dog's body weight. Typically, most vets will recommend a dosage of 5-10mg per pound of the dog. This means that if your dog weighs 50 pounds, it will need 500mg of Amoxicillin twice a day. The dosage duration for Amoxicillin is typically from 10 to 14 days, and sometimes it may go on for longer depending on the condition and symptoms of your dog. The medication starts working as soon as it goes in and continues for 12 to 24 hours.

What Is Amoxicillin Used for in Pets?
Answer

As we already know, Amoxicillin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic used to treat a range of bacterial infections in animals. It's one of the most effective medications to treat conditions like infected wounds, abscesses, respiratory tract infections, UI tract infections, skin infections, and bacterial gastroenteritis. The medicine works effectively as it prohibits the growth of certain strains of bacteria. The list includes but is not limited to E.coli, H. influenzae, Streptococci, N. gonorrhea, Proteus mirabilis, and Pneumococci. The medication starts working within 1 or 2 hours of taking the first dose and improves your dog's condition over the next few days.

How Much Amoxicillin Can a Dog Take?
Answer

The amount of Amoxicillin your dog can take is determined by the veterinarian depending on your furry friend's type, size, age, and breed. Most often, veterinarians stick to the bodyweight metrics of dosage in dogs. A typical vet-recommended dosage is 5-10mg per pound of your dog's body weight. So, for example, if your dog weighs 10 pounds, you'll have to administer 100 mg of Amoxicillin to your dog twice a day but only after consulting a licensed veterinarian. If you are following the correct dosage and the symptoms persist after five or more days, you will need to consult your vet again.

Can Amoxicillin Make My Dog Sick?
Answer

Your dog may show an adverse reaction in case of increased dosage or overdosing. Common side-effects of the antibiotic include loss of coordination, respiratory issues, loss of appetite, diarrhea, vomiting, skin rash, and swelling. The gastrointestinal symptoms can be controlled by giving the medication with the food. While there are no severe side effects of the drug, mild side effects often go away on their own within a day or two.

Is Canine Amoxicillin the Same as Human Amoxicillin?
Answer

No, Amoxicillin intended for human consumption is not the same as canine Amoxicillin. If your vet has prescribed Amoxicillin for your dog, pick the exact same medication from a pet medic or pet care center. Don't substitute Amoxicillin that you may have at home, as some ingredients in the human version are deemed potentially toxic for the dog. These ingredients include preservatives, artificial colors, and flavors that are safe for humans but can cause health issues for your dog. One of the most dangerous ingredients found in human medications is Xylitol, a sugar substitute that's toxic for dogs.

Can Amoxicillin Treat Diarrhea in Dogs?
Answer

Typically, antibiotics like Amoxicillin are not used to treat diarrhea in dogs. However, there have been cases where administering antibiotics resolved diarrhea in some dogs. Veterinarians speculate that this could have been possible if the diarrhea was caused by intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Currently, there are no studies to show why antibiotics work on some types of diarrhea but not on others. That's not to say that you should give Amoxicillin to your dog to treat diarrhea. Do this only if your dog's vet has suggested the same.

Can Amoxicillin Treat Kennel Cough?
Answer

Kennel cough is one of the most contagious infections and should be curbed on time before it spreads if you have more than one dog. The symptoms of Kennel Coughs are similar to bronchitis and make your dog experience a dry and hacking cough. Since it's a bacterial infection, your vet may prescribe Amoxicillin to treat the condition. However, don't administer the drug to your dog without consulting a vet first.

How Can I Get My Dog to Eat While on Antibiotics?
Answer

Loss of appetite is one of the common side effects of most antibiotics, and it's normal for your puppy to stop eating while being treated. However, that is not ideal as your dog's body will require nourishment while on strong medication. To get your dog to eat while on antibiotics, consider adding something more palatable to their regular food. You can consider adding low-sodium, bone, beef, or chicken broth to the food.

Amoxicillin is a moderate-spectrum antibiotic for cats and dogs belonging to the class of penicillin. This medication inhibits the growth of bacteria by preventing the cell wall formation of the bacterial cells. Amoxicillin should be used only to treat bacterial infections and not for viral and parasitic infections . Amoxicillin tablets are contraindicative with certain medications such as Allopurinol and Erythromycin. It should not be used in animals that are hypersensitive to penicillin and on animals reared for meat as amoxicillin is protein binding in nature.

Amoxicillin occurs in the form of trihydrate, which makes up the active ingredient in these capsules. Amoxicillin easily spreads into all body tissues and fluids, except the brain and the spinal fluid, thereby ensuring a wide coverage. It is useful in treating wounds, skin infections, tooth abscesses, infections of lower respiratory tract, genitourinary tract, urinary bladder, etc., in addition to conditions caused by various strains of bacteria such as H. influenzae, N. gonorrhoea, E. coli, Pneumococci, Streptococci, etc.

Amoxicillin capsules might set off insulin allergic reactions in some animals, which might have symptoms like rashes, fever, swelling of face or limbs, labored breathing, rapid heartbeat, and imbalance. Over dosage might result in nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain while abnormally high doses can result in acute oliguric renal failure or hematuria. Other side effects when using amoxicillin include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, which require urgent medical aid.



This antibiotic for dogs and cats should only be used in cases that are proven to be bacterial infections. This medication should not be used in animals allergic to penicillins or cephalosporins. Use with caution in dehydrated animals or animals with kidney or heart disorders. Certain prescription medications such as allopurinol, should be used with caution when taken with amoxicillin due to the increased risk of rash. Erythromycin and probenecid may increase the effectiveness of amoxicillin. Always tell your veterinarian and pharmacist what other medications your pet is taking.

Amoxicillin is available in 250mg and 500mg capsules. The recommended dose of amoxicillin in dogs and cats is 5-10mg/pound every 12-24 hours. However, we recommend you to use it as directed by the veterinarian. Amoxicillin can be given with or without food as it is stable in gastric conditions.
