How It Works

Amoxicillin works by inhibiting the synthesis of bacterial cell walls. Bacteria need cell walls to survive and protect themselves. By inhibiting the synthesis of these cell walls, amoxicillin weakens the bacteria, making them more susceptible to the body's immune system and ultimately leading to their death. Amoxicillin is effective against a wide range of bacteria, including both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, making it a versatile antibiotic for treating bacterial infections in dogs and cats.

Precautions:

It should not be used in animals that are hypersensitive to penicillin and on animals reared for meat as amoxicillin is protein binding in nature. Amoxicillin tablets are contraindicative with certain medications such as Allopurinol and Erythromycin. Capsules are slow dissolving hence it might take some time for the pet to show palpable signs of improvement.

Side Effects:

Amoxicillin capsules might set off insulin allergic reactions in some animals, which might have symptoms like rashes, fever, swelling of face or limbs, labored breathing, rapid heartbeat, and imbalance. Over dosage might result in nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain while abnormally high doses can result in acute oliguric renal failure or hematuria. Other side effects when using amoxicillin include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, which require urgent medical aid.

Storage

Should be stored at room temperature.
