Dosage and administration
For oral administration.
To ensure the correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid under-dosing.
The recommended dose of Clavaseptin Palatable Tablets is 10 mg amoxicillin/2.5mg clavulanic acid/kg twice daily by the oral route in dogs and cats.
In severe infections, the dose may be doubled to 20 mg amoxicillin/5 mg clavulanic acid/kg body weight twice daily.
Duration of treatment:
- 7 days for the treatment of periodontal infections in dogs
- 7 to 14 days for the treatment of skin infections in cats (including wounds and abscesses). The clinical status of animals should be re-evaluated after 7 days and the treatment prolonged for a further 7 days if necessary.
Administration is made easier by the palatable nature of the tablet.
