Clinsol is a liquid oral antibiotic. It is versatile
enough for use against a number of superficial and deep skin infections,
bone infections, dental infections, and soft tissue infections. Clinsol
is FDA-approved for use in dogs, but not in cats; however, prescriptions
for cats are a common veterinary practice.
Read all package instructions and precautionary statements
prior to use.
Clinical signs of an infection may be resolved before
the infection itself; do not discontinue use until the full prescribed
regimen has been completed.
The following directions represent a standard use.
Use exactly as prescribed by your veterinarian.
- Administer 1 to 6 mL Clinsol per 10 lbs. of body
weight every 12 hours to dogs.
- Administer 1 to 3 mL Clinsol per 5 lbs. of body weight
every 24 hours to cats.
- Discontinue use and consult your veterinarian if
no improvement is seen within 3 to 4 days.
- In most (but not all) instances, use should be limited
to 28 days in dogs and 14 days in cats.
Frequency of Use:
Dogs are typically dosed twice per day; cats are
typically dosed once per day. The duration of treatment varies depending
on the location and severity of the infection.
If you miss a dose, administer it as soon as possible.
If it is almost time for the subsequent dose, though, wait and resume
the regular schedule then. Do not administer a double dose of Clinsol.
Keep out of reach of children and animals.
Store Clinsol between 68 and 77 degrees F.
It is a violation of Federal
Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
Clindamycin, the active ingredient in Clinsol, is
rapidly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. It quickly begins stopping
bacterial growth by inhibiting protein synthesis. Clinsol is effective
against a variety of types of infections, and is often used for the
treatment of serious infections.
Keep this product out of reach of children and animals.
Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.
