Clarithromycin appears to be well tolerated in pets, but it may cause some stomach upset. Giving clarithromycin with food may help alleviate some of the stomach side effects. A rare side effect of clarithromycin in cats is inner ear redness.

What else should you know about Clarithromycin oral suspension?

The suspension will arrive as a powder that will need water added to it and a thorough shaking. VetRxDirect will provide a syringe with a marker on it with which you can measure the needed water. Shake vigorously immediately after adding the water and every time you are going to give your pet a dose. Clarithromycin interacts with many medications, including cisapride, antacids, other antibiotics, NSAIDs, ACE Inhibitors, Cyclosporine, spironolactone, potassium, and many other drugs.

    • Acute Bacterial Exacerbation of Chronic Bronchitis in Adults
    • Acute Maxillary Sinusitis
    • Community-Acquired Pneumonia 
    • Pharyngitis/Tonsillitis
