ABOUT CLAVAMOX® (amoxicillin trihydrate/clavulanate potassium)

  • The veterinary antibiotic trusted for over 30 years1
  • Potentiated penicillin approved for veterinary use in dogs and cats
  • Combines the broad-spectrum antibiotic activity of amoxicillin with the unique β-lactamase-inhibiting effect of clavulanate potassium for antimicrobial activity
  • Activity against many Gram-positive and Gram-negative aerobic and anaerobic bacteria
  • Effective in treating skin infections in dogs and cats, periodontal infections in dogs and urinary tract infections in cats
  • Available in chewables and drops

Mode of Action

This unique dual mode of action is what makes CLAVAMOX so effective

Bacteria protected by the β-lactamase enzyme

Clavulanic acid inhibits β-lactamase, thus allowing amoxicillin to disrupt cell wall integrity

Compromised cell wall causes swelling and eventual rupture, ultimately resulting in death of the bacteria

Amoxicillin ß-Lactamase Clavulanic Acid Penicillin Binding Proteins (PBP)

How it works, is why it works

  • Many common bacteria are protected by the ß-lactamase enzyme that binds to and inactivates many penicillins and cephalosporins
  • Amoxicillin alone is unable to inhibit ß-lactamase
  • Clavulanic acid (clavulanate potassium) permanently inhibits ß-lactamase
  • Once the ß-lactamase is neutralized, amoxicillin disrupts cell wall integrity
  • Proven effective 4-to-1 ratio of amoxicillin trihydrate to clavulanic acid
  • Four-quadrant activity provides broad-spectrum coverage you can trust

INDICATIONS FOR DOGS

  • Skin and soft tissue infections such as wounds, abscesses, cellulitis, superficial/juvenile and deep pyoderma due to susceptible strains of the following organisms: β-lactamase-producing Staphylococcus aureus, non-β-lactamase-producing Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp. and Escherichia coli.
  • Periodontal infections due to susceptible strains of both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria.

INDICATIONS FOR CATS

  • Skin and soft tissue infections such as wounds, abscesses, cellulitis/dermatitis due to susceptible strains of the following organisms: β-lactamase-producing Staphylococcus aureus, non-β-lactamase-producing Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Escherichia coli and Pasteurella spp.
  • Urinary tract infections (cystitis) due to susceptible strains of Escherichia coli.
