What is compounding?
Drug compounding is often regarded as the process of combining or mixing drugs to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient.

Biomox is a semi-synthetic, broad-spectrum amoxicillin prescribed to dogs for the treatment of bacterial dermatitis and soft-tissue infections. Some of these infections may include abscesses, wounds and cuts caused by susceptible strains of bacteria. Biomox is also known to treat ear, urinary tract, upper respiratory, bladder, dental and skin infections (infected bite wounds).
Biomox (amoxicillin) for oral suspension is used in the treatment of infections in dogs caused by susceptible strains of organisms.
Amoxicillin is a semisynthetic penicillin and has the potential for producing allergic reactions. Epinephrine and/or steroids should be administered if an allergic reaction occurs.
Cherry Flavor, Silicon Dioxide NF, FD&C Red #40, Polyoxypropylene GLycol, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Saccharin, and Sucrose.
The recommended dosage is 5 mg per pound of body weight administered twice a day for 5 to 7 days. Continue for 48 hours after all symptoms have subsided. If no improvement is noted within 5 days, the diagnosis should be reconsidered and therapy changed.
Add sufficient water to the bottle as indicated in the table below and shake vigorously. Each mL of suspension will contain 50 mg of amoxicillin as the trihydrate.
|Bottle Size||Amount of Water to Add for Reconstitution|
|15 mL||11 mL|

Federal Law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
Amoxicillin has bactericidal activity against susceptible organisms similar to that of ampicillin. It acts by inhibiting the biosynthesis of bacterial wall mucopeptides. Most strains of the following gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria have demonstrated susceptibility to amoxicillin, both in vitro and in vivo: nonpenicillinase producing staphylococci, alpha and beta-hemolytic streptococci, Streptococcus faecalis, Eshcherichia coli and Proteus mirabilis. Amoxicillin does not resist destruction by penicillinase; therefore, it is not effective against penicillinase producing bacteria, particularly resistant staphylococci, Most strains of Enterobacter and Klebsiella and all strains of Pseudomonas are resistant.
Amoxicillin may be given without regard to meals because it is stable in gastric acid. It is rapidly absorbed following oral administration and diffuses readily into most body fluids and tissues. It diffuses poorly into the brain and spinal fluid except when the meninges are inflamed. Most of the amoxicillin is excreted in the urine unchanged.
Use of amoxicillin is contraindicated in animals with a history of an allergic reaction to penicillin.
Amoxicillin is a semisynthetic penicillin and, therefore, has the potential for producing allergic reactions. Epinephrine and/or steroids should be administered if an allergic reaction occurs.
For use in dogs only.
Until adequate reproductive studies are accomplished, Biomox (amoxicillin) tablets should not be used in pregnant or breeding animals.
