CLINTABS TABLETS

(clindamycin hydrochloride)

Clintabs (clindamycin hydrochloride) is an antibiotic used to treat dental, bone and soft tissue infections in dogs and cats.

Aerobic bacteria: Clindamycin hydrochloride is indicated for the treatment of soft tissue infections (wounds and abscesses), dental infections and osteomyelitis caused by susceptible strains of Staphylococcus aureus.

Anaerobic bacteria: Clindamycin hydrochloride is indicated for the treatment of soft tissue infections (deep wounds and abscesses), dental infections and osteomyelitis caused by or associated with susceptible strains of Bacteroides fragilis, Bacteroides melaninogenicus, Fusobacterium necrophorum and Clostridium perfringens.

Clindamycin is an inhibitor of protein synthesis in the bacterial cell.

Contraindications:

Clintabs (clindamycin hydrochloride) Tablets are contraindicated in animals with a history of hypersensitivity to preparations containing clindamycin or lincomycin.

Because of potential adverse gastrointestinal effects, do not administer to rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, chinchillas or ruminating animals.

Precautions:

Clintabs (clindamycin hydrochloride) Tablets should be prescribed with caution in atopic animals.

During prolonged therapy of one month or greater, periodic liver and kidney function tests and blood counts should be performed.

The use of clindamycin hydrochloride occasionally results in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms such as clostridia and yeasts. Therefore, the administration of clindamycin hydrochloride should be avoided in those species sensitive to the gastrointestinal effects of clindamycin. Should superinfections occur, appropriate measures should be taken as indicated by the the clinical situation.

Patients with very severe renal disease and/or very severe hepatic disease accompanied by severe metabolic aberrations should be dosed with caution, and serum clindamycin levels monitored during high-dose therapy.

Clindamycin hydrochloride has been shown to have neuromuscular blocking properties that may enhance the action of other neuromuscular blocking agents. Therefore, clindamycin hydrochloride should be used with caution in animals receiving such agents.

Safety in gestating bitches or breeding males has not been established.

Side effects occasionally observed in either clinical trials or during clinical use were vomiting and diarrhea.
