My dog was given clavamox,the vet changed her mind and gave her Doxycycline.Can the clavamox be taken by any of us?
Hi, fin! I have no doubt of the quality of Clavamox, but it is one of just a handful of antibiotics we use that is NOT a human formulation. The amount of clavanulic acid in Clavamox isn't the same as the human near-equivalent Augmentin, and it's usage could lead to bacterial amoxicillin resistance. It's usage in humans is rather specialized on a per case basis.
If you got the foil-wrapped tablets from your vet you might be able to return them ~ depending on your vet.
Best wishes, WCV
