Description

Clintabs Tablets is a prescription broad-spectrum antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections of the skin, mouth and bones caused by certain types of bacteria. It may also be prescribed to treat certain protozoan infections, such as toxoplasmosis and babesiosis. It works by stopping bacteria from producing proteins that encourage their growth and reproduction, stopping the spread of infection and allowing the body's immune system to kill the bacteria

Key Benefits

  • Proven effective oral antibiotic treatment in dogs for dental infections
  • Also treats skin infections (wounds and abscesses) due to coagulase positive staphylococci (Staphylococcus aureus or Staphylococcus intermedius).
  • It is also indicated to treat deep wounds and abscesses
  • Exclusive easy-to-swallow tablet form makes administration and compliance easy for dog owners.
  • Administer every 12 hours for up to 28 days as needed.
  • For acute infections, discontinue use after 3 to 4 days if no response is seen.

How it works

This orally-administered medication works by suppressing the reproduction and growth of bacteria.

Actions:

Site and Mode of Action: Clindamycin is an inhibitor of protein synthesis in the bacterial cell. The site of binding appears to be in the 50S sub-unit of the ribosome. Binding occurs to the soluble RNA fraction of certain ribosomes, thereby inhibiting the binding of amino acids to those ribosomes. Clindamycin differs from cell wall inhibitors in that it causes irreversible modification of the protein-synthesizing subcellular elements at the ribosomal level.

Animal Safety:

Rat and Dog Data: One year oral toxicity studies in rats and dogs at doses of 30, 100 and 300 mg/kg/day (13.6, 45.5 and 136.5 mg/lb/day) shown clindamycin hydrochloride capsules to be well tolerated. Differences did not occur in the parameters evaluated to assess toxicity when comparing groups of treated animals with contemporary controls. Rats administered clindamycin hydrochloride at 600 mg/kg/day (272.7 mg/lb/day) for six months tolerated the drug well; however, dogs orally dosed at 600 mg/kg/day (272.7 mg/lb/day) vomited, had anorexia, and subsequently lost weight. At necropsy these dogs had erosive gastritis and focal areas of necrosis of the mucosa of the gall bladder.

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

Caution:

Federal (USA) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Contraindications:

Clintabs 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.

Warnings:

Keep out of reach of children. Not for human use.

Precautions

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 Clintabs Tablets should be avoided in those species sensitive to the gastrointestinal effects of clindamycin (see Contraindications).

Should superinfections occur, appropriate measures should be taken as indicated by 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, Clintabs Tablets should be used with caution in animals receiving such agents.

Safety in gestating bitches or breeding male dogs has not been established.

Adverse Reactions:

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

To report adverse reactions or a suspected adverse reaction, call 1-800-338-3659.

Storage:

Store at controlled room temperature 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F).

elderly dog with bad dentition
March 2, 2020
Our very elderly dog with bad dentition is on this and it has improved her comfort. Since she is 19 years old, anesthesia and dental work is not advised. Our vet prescribed this medication to help with dental infection and she is much more able to eat with comfort.
