Amoxi-Clav Tablets

Generic Clavamox
(Amoxicillin Trihydrate/Clavulanate Potassium)

Putney Amoxicillin Trihydrate and Clavulanate Potassium Tablets (amoxicillin trihydrate/clavulanate potassium) are an orally administered formulation comprised of the broad-spectrum antibiotic amoxicillin trihydrate and the β-lactamase inhibitor, clavulanate potassium (the potassium salt of clavulanic acid). Amoxi-Clav Tablets are a generic of Clavamox Tablets (Pfizer).

Amoxicillin trihydrate is a semisynthetic antibiotic with a broad spectrum of bactericidal activity against many gram-positive and gram-negative, aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms. It does not resist destruction by β-lactamases; therefore, it is not effective against β-lactamase-producing bacteria.

Clavulanic acid
, an inhibitor of β-lactamase enzymes, is produced by the fermentation of Streptomyces clavuligerus. Clavulanic acid by itself has only weak antibacterial activity.

Amoxicilin Trihydrate/Clavulanate Potassium Tablets are indicated in the treatment of:

  • Skin and soft tissue infections such as wounds, abscesses, cellulitis, superficial/juvenile and deep pyoderma due to susceptible organisms.
  • Periodontal infections due to susceptible strains of both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria.
Actions: Amoxicillin Trihydrate and Clavulanate Potassium Tablets combine the distinctive properties of a broad-spectrum antibiotic and a β-lactamase inhibitor to effectively extend the antibacterial spectrum of amoxicillin to include β-lactamase-producing as well as non-β-lactamase-producing aerobic and anaerobic organisms.

Amoxicillin is bactericidal in action and acts through the inhibition of biosynthesis of cell wall mucopeptide of susceptible organisms. The action of clavulanic acid extends the antimicrobial spectrum of amoxicillin to include organisms resistant to amoxicillin and other β-lactam antibiotics. Amoxicillin/clavulanate has been shown to have a wide range of activity which includes β-lactamase-producing strains of both gram-positive and gram-negative aerobes, facultative anaerobes, and obligate anaerobes.

Contraindications: The use of this drug is contraindicated in animals with a history of an allergic reaction to any of the penicillins or cephalosporins.

Do not remove from foil strip until ready to use.

Adverse Reactions: Amoxicillin Trihydrate and Clavulanate Potassium Tablets contain a semisynthetic penicillin (amoxicillin) and has the potential for producing allergic reactions. If an allergic reaction occurs, administer epinephrine and/or steroids.

Dosage and Administration:

Dogs: The recommended dosage is 6.25 mg/lb of body weight twice a day.

Skin and soft tissue infections such as abscesses, cellulitis, wounds, superficial/juvenile pyoderma, and periodontal infections should be treated for 5-7 days or for 48 hours after all symptoms have subsided. If no response is seen after 5 days of treatment, therapy should be discontinued and the case reevaluated. Deep pyoderma may require treatment for 21 days; the maximum duration of treatment should not exceed 30 days.

Cats: The recommended dosage is 62.5 mg twice a day.

Skin and soft tissue infections such as abscesses and cellulitis/dermatitis should be treated for 5-7 days or for 48 hours after all symptoms have subsided, not to exceed 30 days. If no response is seen after 3 days of treatment, therapy should be discontinued and the case reevaluated.

Urinary tract infections may require treatment for 10-14 days or longer. The maximum duration of treatment should not exceed 30 days.
