INDICATIONS AND USAGE

Amoxicilin Drops are used in the treatment of susceptible strains of the organisms causing the following infections:

Dogs:

  • Respiratory tract infections (tonsillitis, tracheobronchitis) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Proteus mirabilis.
  • Genitourinary tract infections (cystitis) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Proteus mirabilis.
  • Gastrointestinal tract infections (bacterial gastroenteritis) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Proteus mirabilis.
  • Bacterial dermatitis due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., and Proteus mirabilis.
  • Soft tissue infections (abscesses, lacerations, and wounds) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Proteus mirabilis.

Cats:

  • Upper respiratory tract infections due to Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Haemophilus spp., E. coli, Pasteurella spp., and Proteus mirabilis.
  • Genitourinary tract infections (cystitis) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli, Proteus mirabilis, and Corynebacterium spp.
  • Gastrointestinal tract infections due to E. coli, Proteus spp., Staphylococcus spp., and Streptococcus spp.
  • Skin and soft tissue infections (abscesses, lacerations, and wounds) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Pasteurella multocida.

 

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:

Dogs: The recommended dosage is 5 mg/lb of body weight. Administer twice daily for 5-7 days. Continue for 48 hours after all symptoms have subsided.

AMOXI-DROP®

Zoetis

(amoxicillin)

For veterinary oral suspension

For use in dogs and cats

CAUTION: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

DESCRIPTION: Amoxi-Drop (amoxicillin) is a semisynthetic antibiotic with a broad spectrum of activity. It provides bactericidal activity against a wide range of common gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens. Chemically, it is D(-)-α-amino-p-hydroxybenzyl penicillin trihydrate.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY: Amoxi-Drop is stable in the presence of gastric acid and may be given without regard to meals. It is rapidly absorbed after oral administration. It diffuses readily into most body tissues and fluids with the exception of brain and spinal fluid, except when meninges are inflamed. Most of the amoxicillin is excreted unchanged in the urine.

Amoxicillin is similar to ampicillin in its bactericidal action against susceptible organisms. It acts through the inhibition of biosynthesis of cell wall mucopeptide. In vitro and/or in vivo studies have demonstrated the susceptibility of most strains of the following gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria: α- and β-haemolytic streptococci, nonpenicillinase-producing staphylococci, Streptococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli, and Proteus mirabilis. Because it does not resist destruction by penicillinase, it is not effective against penicillinase-producing bacteria, particularly resistant staphylococci. All strains of Pseudomonas and most strains of Klebsiella and Enterobacter are resistant.

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

Dogs: Amoxi-Drop is indicated in the treatment of susceptible strains of the organisms causing the following infections:

Respiratory tract infections (tonsillitis, tracheobronchitis) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Proteus mirabilis.

Genitourinary tract infections (cystitis) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Proteus mirabilis.

Gastrointestinal tract infections (bacterial gastroenteritis) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Proteus mirabilis.

Bacterial dermatitis due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., and Proteus mirabilis.

Soft tissue infections (abscesses, lacerations, and wounds) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Proteus mirabilis.

Cats: Amoxi-Drop is indicated in the treatment of susceptible strains of the organisms causing the following infections:

Upper respiratory tract infections due to Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Haemophilus spp., E. coli, Pasteurella spp., and Proteus mirabilis.

Genitourinary tract infections (cystitis) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli, Proteus mirabilis, and Corynebacterium spp.

Gastrointestinal tract infections due to E. coli, Proteus spp., Staphylococcus spp., and Streptococcus spp.

Skin and soft tissue infections (abscesses, lacerations, and wounds) due to Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., E. coli, and Pasteurella multocida.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: The use of this drug is contraindicated in animals with a history of an allergic reaction to penicillin.

WARNINGS: For use in dogs and cats only. Not for use in animals which are raised for food production.

ADVERSE REACTIONS: Amoxicillin is a semisynthetic penicillin and has the potential for producing allergic reactions. If an allergic reaction occurs, administer epinephrine and/or steroids.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:

Dogs: The recommended dosage is 5 mg/lb of body weight. Administer twice daily for 5-7 days. Continue for 48 hours after all symptoms have subsided.

Cats: The recommended dosage is 50 mg (5-10 mg/lb). Administer once daily for 5-7 days. Continue for 48 hours after all symptoms have subsided.
