Instructions

Possible Side Effects of Amoxibactin for Dogs and Cats

In rare cases (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals treated, including isolated reports), there are some side effects that can occur after administering Amoxibactin to your pet. These include: 

Diarrhoea and/or vomiting

Hypersensitivity reactions including allergic skin reactions and anaphylaxis.

If your pet displays any of the above reactions, discontinue treatment and contact your vet for further advice. 

How to Store Amoxibactin Tablets 

Amoxibactin tablets should not be stored in temperatures above 30°C and should be kept out of reach of children and animals.

Administration Instructions:

Amoxibactin should be administered orally to both cat’s and dogs. If necessary, tablets can be broken up into halves or quarters by placing the tablet on a flat surface and pressing down with your thumbs on both sides, or in the middle, of the tablet. Amoxibactin can be administered with or without food.

Do not handle amoxibactin if you have a known sensitivity to penicillins or cepholasporins.  Seek medical advice if you develop any signs after handling amoxibactin. 

Always wash your hands after handling. 

How to Administer Tablets to Pets 

Before you begin trying to administer the tablet to your pet, ensure you have fully read and understood the safety information provided with the medication. This should tell you whether or not this medication can be given with food or not.

With Food 

If this medication can be administered with food, you can try hiding the pill inside your pet’s favourite treat, just ensure they get the full dose. Some brands even offer pill giver treats such as the Royal Canin Pill Assist to help you administer medication to your pet. 

You can also try crushing the pill up and mixing it in with your pet’s ordinary meal. Just be sure to check with your vet beforehand as some medication can be less effective once crushed. If you are mixing the tablet with your pet’s food, ensure they consume the whole dose. 

Without Food

If your pet’s medication needs to be administered without food (on an empty stomach), then here is a simple method to help: 

Stand your pet on a slip-free surface and tilt their head back towards the ceiling. 

Open your pet’s mouth and gently put the pill as far back on your pet’s tongue as you can. 

Hold your pet’s mouth closed and gently stroke their throat to encourage swallowing. Make sure your pet has swallowed the full dose before letting them go. 

You can also trickle in small amounts of water into your pet’s mouth to help encourage swallowing. Stop if any coughing or gagging occurs. 

If it is particularly difficult to administer tablets to your pet, speak with your vet to see if there are any oral suspension options available.
