Who should not take it?
Amoxicillin crosses the placenta, and the safe use of Clavamox in pregnant or breeding animals has not been determined.
Do NOT use amoxicillin in rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters or other rodents since it will affect the normal bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract and possibly cause fatal diarrhea.
Use with caution in very small animals who may be dehydrated or have kidney or heart disorders.
What side effects may be seen when taking Clavamox?
