(clindamycin hydrochloride capsules, USP)
Antirobe Caps are a highly effective antibiotic used to treat soft tissue infections (infected wounds and abscesses), dental infections (infected mouth cavity), and bone infections (osteomyelitis) in dogs.
Infected Wounds, Abscesses, and Dental Infections
2.5-15.0 mg/lb body weight every 12 hours.
Treatment with ANTIROBE products may be continued up to a maximum of 28 days if clinical judgment indicates. Treatment of acute infections should not be continued for more than three or four days if no response to therapy is seen.
ANTIROBE 75 mg, administer 1-6 capsules every 12 hours for each 30 pounds of body weight.
The use of ANTIROBE occasionally results in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms such as clostridia and yeasts. Therefore, the administration of ANTIROBE should be avoided in those species sensitive to the gastrointestinal effects of clindamycin (see CONTRAINDICATIONS). Should superinfections occur, appropriate measures should be taken as indicated by the clinical situation.
Patients with very 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, ANTIROBE should be used with caution in animals receiving such agents.
Safety in gestating bitches and queens or breeding male dogs and cats has not been established.
