What Is The Youngest Age That A Dog Or Cat Can have Clavamox?

There is no minimum age for the use of Clavamox on the product label.

Is Clavamox Affected By Stomach Acids? Is Clavamox Readily Distributed Into Tissues After Administration?

Clavamox is stable in the presence of gastric acid and not significantly influenced by gastric or intestinal contents. The two components are rapidly absorbed resulting in amoxicillin and clavulanic acid concentrations in serum, urine, and tissues similar to those produced when each is administered alone. Amoxicillin and clavulanic acid diffuse readily into most body tissues and fluid with the exception of brain and spinal fluid.

What Is The Half-Life Of Clavamox? How Is Clavamox Metabolized And Excreted?

Per Plumb’s Drug Formulary, the half-life in dogs is .39 hours with peak plasma levels occurring 1 hour after absorption. The drug is excreted unchanged in the urine. In dogs, 34-52% of a dose is excreted in the urine as unchanged drug and metabolites, 25-27% eliminated in the feces and 16-33% into the respired air.

    Still Waiting

    By on

    Chewy lost the fax from my vet. So the order wasn’t processed/sent in time to pick up where my initial supply from my vet ran out. So I ended up having to return to my vet for another expensive supply. After speaking with customer‘service’, I was told that Chewy would send me a check to offset the expense that I incurred. That would have been nice. Fortunately I’m not holding my breath...... will it ever arrive? Hahahaha. Will I use Chewy again? Given this experience, it is extremely unlikely.

    Wish I had known about chewable Clavamox before now

    By on

    Our male cat just had dental surgery and the vet recommended chewable Clavamox as part of the treatment plan. The cat loves it - he thinks it is a kitty treat and tries to get it out of my hand as soon as he smells it and gobbles it right down. Apparently it has been available since 2017, but I only just found out about it now (2020). I wish I had known about it last summer when my female cat was sick with a UTI. We couldn't get the regular Clavamox pills in her - not with a pill gun and not by crushing them and putting them in her food, and then the emergency vet gave her a Convenia shot which I believe played a part in her death (I have since learned that Convenia shouldn't have been used Our male cat just had dental surgery and the vet recommended chewable Clavamox as part of the treatment plan.
