As with most antibiotics, Clavulin® may cause a decreased appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, or reduced activity levels.
During prolonged use at a very high dose, it is possible, although very unusual, that the drug becomes toxic to the neurological system.
For more information on other possible side effects, please refer to the monograph that accompanies this product.
Clavulin® may affect the effectiveness of some other antibiotics and may interact with methotrexate or probenecid.
It is important to notify the veterinarian if the animal is already receiving any medications when starting Clavulin®.
After mixing the powder in water, keep the medication in the refrigerator.
Throw away what is left of the liquid after 7 days.
Make sure that the animal's condition improves and that it does not suffer from any side effects.
The antibiotic should be administered with a meal and with probiotics to try to avoid gastrointestinal disturbances such as vomiting, diarrhea and loss of appetite.
It is important to shake the bottle vigorously at the time of reconstitution and before each dose.
Keep out of the reach of children and animals.
In order not to promote the development of antimicrobial resistance, it is important to complete the prescription, even if the symptoms have disappeared.
In the presence of severe, worsening or persistent side effects, contact a veterinarian as soon as possible.
Clavulin® is available in liquid.
