Clindamycin is the antibiotic that veterinarians most often reach for when your dog or cat has an infection involving the skin, mouth, or bones. It is fast-acting and well tolerated, even in puppies and kittens, and is effective against the anaerobic bacteria that commonly cause gum infections, as well as many strains of Staph, which are often the cause of skin problems.

Clindamycin is also used to treat cats with toxoplasmosis, an organism that can be spread to humans and is potentially quite serious. Clindamycin can be administered through injection or by mouth. Dosage will vary according to your pets age, weight, and condition.

Is Clindamycin Good for Dogs?

Yes, Clindamycin capsules are good for dogs. Clindamycin HCL Antibiotics is a class of drugs that help your dog against bacterial infections. It is widely used for treating wounds, bone, and dental infections. You can also use Clindamycin for ear infection. The drug can treat infections caused by protozoa. Vets recommend this medication for dogs having infections in different internal organs like lungs or respiratory tracts. They also recommend Clindamycin for strep throat.

What Is Clindamycin Most Commonly Used For?

Clindamycin is most commonly used for bacterial infections in dogs. The Clindamycin drug class falls in the lincomycin antibiotics category. Clindamycin antibiotic tablets are prescribed by vets to dogs that are suffering a wide range of problems. These include infections in the skin, blood, lungs, female reproductive system, and many other internal organs. Vets seldom prescribe Clindamycin for UTI โ€“ Urinary Tract Infection โ€“ as this particular treatment can have more consequential side effects. You should know that a Clindamycin dosage does not necessarily kill the bacteria. It merely slows them down, but in an effective way, which eventually prevents the infection from reaching a life-threatening stage. Clindamycin uses bacterial protein synthesis to slow down bacterial growth and spread. That way, the bacteria fail to reproduce and spread, hence slowing down the infection.

How Much Clindamycin Should I Give My Dog?

Normally, a dog needs 5.5 mg/kg Clindamycin a day. You can also give 11 mg/kg twice a day. This dosage should continue for seven to ten days. Your vet can give you a more accurate number based on the condition of your dog.

Will Clindamycin Hurt My Dog?

No, Clindamycin will not hurt your dog. However, you should avoid giving it the medication if it has pre-existing conditions like problematic kidneys or liver.

How Long Does It Take Clindamycin to Work?

Clindamycin starts work within an hour or two after administering the drug. However, to fully understand the effect of the drug, you will have to wait a few days.
