No, unless a Vet has seen her and prescribed it for her.

I work at a vet clinic for my second job, just for fun, and I have never seen out vet ever give clindamycin. I don't even think we have it in out drug cabinet. I am also a nurse in a hospital and don't see it given other than with serious infections or specific infections, it is a strong antibiotic and wipes your system clean... even the good bacteria. Usually the vet gives amoxicillin for ear infections, probably 500 mg caps twice a day for 7 days, with topical ointment for ears. free discount card
