Further information
Amoxicillin is a broad spectrum bactericidal β-lactam antibiotic. Clavulanic acid inactivates β-lactamases. This combination is effective against β-lactamase producing organisms.
Prednisolone is an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid.
In vitro, clavulanic acid and amoxicillin in combination are active against a wide range of clinically important bacteria including the following organisms which are commonly associated with bovine mastitis:
Staphylococci (including β-lactamase producing strains)
Streptococci (including S. agalactiae, S. dysgalactiae and S. uberis)
Arcanobacteria (including A. pyogenes)
Escherichia coli (including β-lactamase producing strains)
No adverse reactions are to be expected from an accidental overdose.
