What is Clindamycin?
Clindamycin is an oral antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. It also kills some protozoa.

Who is it for?
Clindamycin is commonly used for dogs, cats, and ferrets.

What are the benefits?

* Treats deep skin infections, wounds, abscesses, and dental and bone bacterial infections
* Also treats certain protozoan infections
* Available in multiple dosage forms for easy administration

Clindamycin is a prescription broad-spectrum antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections of the skin, mouth and bones caused by susceptible bacteria. It also treats certain protozoan infections such as toxoplasmosis and babesiosis.

How does Clindamycin work?
It prevents bacteria from producing proteins that are essential to their growth and reproduction. It therefore stops the spread of infection, allowing the body's immune system to kill the bacteria. At higher doses it can actually kill the bacteria.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
This medication is a generic clindamycin.

How is it given?
Clindamycin is given orally. If using a tablet or pill form, you must make sure your pet swallows some water after taking the medication, or the medication may cause damage to the esophagus. Do not use milk. Cats should have at least a teaspoon of water. Try offering your cat water flavored with tuna water or other liquid your cat likes.

Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Use all of the medication prescribed, even if your pet appears well. If the entire course of treatment is not given, the infection may recur or worsen.

What results can I expect?
Clindamycin is rapidly absorbed from the digestive system and is distributed to many body tissues, making it effective against infections in multiple organs. It is active against many different types of bacteria. It is usually given twice a day for a number of days. If doses are missed or the entire treatment regimen is not completed, the infection could recur or worsen. Consult your veterinarian if the animal's condition does not improve or worsens after beginning treatment with clindamycin.

What form(s) does it come in?
This medication comes in liquid (dispensed as Zydaclin), tablet, and capsule form.
