Contraindications

Clindamycin Hydrochloride Oral Liquid is contraindicated in animals with history  of hypersensitivity to preparations containing clindamycin or lincomycin. Because of the potential adverse gastrointestinal effects, do not administer to rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, chinchillas or ruminating animals. 

 

Precautions

During prolonged therapy of one month or greater, periodic liver and kidney function tests and blood counts should be performed.

The use of clindamycin hydrochloride occasionally results in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms such as clostridia and yeasts. Therefore, the administration of clindamycin hydrochloride should be avoided in those species sensitive to the gastrointestinal effects of clindamycin. Should superinfection occur, appropriate measures should be taken as indicated by the clinical situation.

Patients with severe renal disease and/or very severe hepatic disease accompanied by severe metabolic aberrations should be dosed with caution, and serum clindamycin levels monitored during high dose therapy.

Clindamycin hydrochloride has been shown to have neuromuscular blocking properties that may enhance the action of other neuromuscular blocking agents. Therefore, clindamycin hydrochloride should be used with caution with animals receiving such agents. Safety in gestating female dogs and female cats or breeding male dogs and cats has not been established.
