A moderate-spectrum antibiotic (amoxicillin) combined with a beta lactamase inhibitor (clavulanate), Augmentin is an effective treatment for a number of different bacterial infections, from ear infections, strep throat, pneumonia, UTIs, Salmonella, Lyme disease, chlamydia, and other skin infections. Augmentin is also useful in the treatment of dental infections in dogs.
Augmentin is not safe to use in pets with a known sensitivity to penicillin or cephalosporin type antibiotics. Also, pregnant pets should use Augmentin with caution. Augmentin should not be given with food, as it may diminish the bodies ability to absorb the antibiotics. Augmentin, a form of penicillin, loses some to most of its effectiveness when taken with antacids, bacteriostatic drugs, cephalosporin and aminoglycoside antibiotics, and probenecid.
Should be taken 1-2 hours after mealtime. Dogs and Cats -- 10 - 20 mg/kg orally, twice a day.
Augmentin can have gastrointestinal effects, such as vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of appetite. Hypersensitivity to the drug can result in rashes, blood disorders, fever, or anaphylactic shock (strong allergic reaction). Prolonged use in dogs has been reported to cause ataxia, tachypnea, dyspnea, edema, and tachycardia (abnormal heart rate).
