Antibiotics for Bacterial Infections

Amoxicillin is a broad spectrum antibiotic for bacterial infections. Amoxicillin is administered orally to dogs, cats, and other pets and can be used to treat pneumonia, skin infections, urinary tract infections and other infections.

Comparable Trade Names & Generics

Amoxicillin is a semi-synthetic, broad spectrum, well-tolerated antibiotic used to treat most types of infections in cats and dogs. Because the medication rarely causes side effects and works rapidly to kill bacteria and ease symptoms, it is one of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics for animals.

Benefits of Amoxicillin:

  • Treats both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria
  • Effective against urinary tract infections, ear infections, dental infections, respiratory infections, and skin infections
  • Available in a variety of forms and strength to suit most animals
  • Clears symptoms rapidly, often within days
  • Generally well tolerated

Use this medication only as directed by your veterinarian.

Administer Amoxicillin with food if your animal develops gastrointestinal side effects.

Do not give this medication to animals allergic to it or to similar antibiotics.

Directions:

  1. Give dogs 5 mg per pound of body weight twice daily.
  2. Give cats 5 to 10 mg once daily.
  3. Give ferrets, horses, cattle, rodents, birds, rabbits, and reptiles the amount prescribed by your veterinarian.
  4. Treat most conditions for 5 to 7 days, or until 48 hours after all symptoms disappear. If your veterinarian's instructions differ, follow those directions.
  5. Reconsider diagnosis and/or treatment if symptoms fail to improve after 5 days.

Frequency of Use:

Give once or twice each day for up to 7 days, or as prescribed by your veterinarian.

Storage:

Store Amoxicillin Oral Suspension in the refrigerator, if possible. Discard unused solution after 14 days. Do not store tablets or capsules above 77 degrees F.

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Amoxicillin works very similarly to ampicillin, and both belong to the penicillin class of antibiotics. Penicillins generally work by inhibiting mucopeptide synthesis in the cell wall of susceptible bacteria. Amoxicillin and other broad-spectrum penicillins show increased activity against some gram-negative aerobes that natural penicillins do not.

Warnings:

Keep this product out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

Amoxicillin is intended for use in dogs and cats. It is sometimes used to treat small animals, reptiles, birds, horses, cattle, and other animals.

CAUTION: Do not give amoxicillin to animals that are allergic to it or show sensitivity to other beta-lactam antibiotics, such as carbapenems or cephalosporins.

Do not give this medication to animals with septicemia or shock, as absorption from the GI tract may be delayed.

Penicillins are probably safe for use during pregnancy and breeding, but use caution when treating these animals.

Hypersensitivity may show as fever, rash, lymphadenopathy, eosinophilia, agranulocytosis, anemia, thrombocytopenia, neutropenia, or anaphylaxis.

Side effects are usually mild and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and anorexia. High doses or prolonged use may result in neurotoxicity. In dogs, amoxicillin may cause edema, tacycardia, tachypnea, and/or dyspnea.

Penicillins may display synergistic or additive activity when used along with cephalosporins or aminoglycosides. They may perform less well when used in combination with tetracyclines and other bacteriostatic antibiotics. Do not use with probenecid.
