Resistance to many antibiotics is caused by beta-lactamase enzymes which destroy the antibiotic before it can act on the bacteria themselves. The clavulanate in Synulox counteracts this defence mechanism by inactivating the beta-lactamases, thus rendering the organisms sensitive to amoxicillin's rapid bactericidal effect, at concentrations readily attainable in the body.
Synulox is effective against Klebsiella infections found in veterinary practice, but it is not indicated for cases involving Pseudomonas species.
Synulox Palatable Drops can be safely used in pregnant and lactating animals.
Synulox Palatable Tablets are available as an alternative presentation for treating sick dogs and cats.
