Amoxicillin for cats dosage

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin for cats dosage


2081476 tn?1332712729 Best if kitty is seen by a Vet and you can than ask this question yourself...the Vet will tell you if its the right antibiotic and the correct dosage and for how long the kitty needs to take the med to completely kill the infection.... an office visit is only a few dollars and well worth it for the safety and health of your loving pet.
Avatar f tn i didn't know coughing is notnormal for cats-i thought he just had phlegm running down the back of his throat and we almost lost him. that said-mine all had stuffy noses too and i tried everything: putting vicks on their chins so the vapors would drift to the nost but not be where it could be eaten-NOT appreciated.
Avatar f tn My cat had an abscess on his back - which I have enough experience with to treat myself. I have owned cats for 30 years. I have been able to clear and heal the wound and have been dosing him with amoxicillin. He seems to have an allergy to this antibiotic as I have discovered hes been throwing up in the basement. This is the usual drug I use to treat abscess-type infections and I want to make sure the interior infection clears up.
12629092 tn?1426357827 Hi Sparkle, You are pretty wonderful for taking on this elderly cat. These poor cats all too often end up in Rescues where they just wither away alone . No one want to adopt them so they live their lonely days out without the love and care of their human whom they loved. I wondered sometimes if they ever really wanted to continue living without someone to love them one on one. VERY Sad. So now you have this cat who is very lucky to be with you and cared for by you.
537664 tn?1372786657 Can cats use human antibiotics? Should it be opened up to drain? I know cats can take a small dose of aspirin like dogs for pain relief? I told her about the ASPCA and she will call tomorrow to see if free vet services are available....
Avatar n tn Some vets prescribe some humane medicine for pets - but they know the problem AND the correct usage/dosage for.Never try this for yourself without professional help. If you're just trying to give a medicine prescribed by a vet, ask him/her if you can do the way you want. Personally, I think sprinkle on food has no chance of working - cat wont eat that. Mixing with water can cause him getting a subdosage, also.
4451049 tn?1387157037 Then when I was finished with that one, I took Amoxicillin x 500 mg tid for about a month. And now Bactrim DS bid. I had no obvious herx with any of these antibiotics, maybe they're just not the ones I need. I got the first two from the dentist. I take a bunch of supplements and never experienced an obvious herx either. This is obviously one complicated disease! Trying to figure out what co infections may be involved is aggravating.
Avatar m tn just incase I am sending you the site and the recommended dosage for cats, if you don't have enough to use for the recommended time week-10days than it will just cause a suspected infection to grow even stronger and possibly antibiotic resistant. so if you are going to do this you must have a good supply. or please take this kitty in where it can be cared for and not suffer.
1356964 tn?1302091035 org/#Cystitis_ I will also jump in abt BAYTRIL....beware, can be dangerous for cats...high doses lead to blindness. also baytril is known to produce enroflanax crystals in the urine that DO NOT dissolve....sorry I do not have the documentation to back that up w/o alot of research, it was just a note I had added to my scribbler as a precaution. there are safer antibiotics avail!!! IMO your Vet is doing exactly what Spook doesn't need.
Avatar m tn If it's an allergy, your vet might give you benedryl for your kitty, but you need a diagnosis and a vet's dosage recommendation - you can't just pick up the benedryl and guess! However, there is something that sometimes helps with the symptoms, while your cat is on the meds and waiting to feel better. It's called Gentle Vapors (google it, it's a common, inexpensive pediatric product that you can get at Walgreens, or the equivelent).
Avatar n tn Usually the antibiotic I use (from vet) is essentially children's amoxicillin, when you dose him, it should be three times a day, for three-four days or until it clears up. It sounds like you under dosed him the next day and the medication was insufficient. I believe the ratio is about 1 mg per 1 pd, but i can't remember offhand so be wary of this information. It's best to deliver it orally as well (I'm not sure if you meant oral or intravenous syringe).
611067 tn?1458595083 Anyone have any other ideas? Can cats take anything for allergies? My vet said only predisone shots and he's already had one of those.
Avatar f tn you need them now for her. Go to the 'human doctor' and get some Amoxicillin which is safe for cats. It's pink and comes in liquid form and very easy give. Every doctor, including vets, carry this type of antibiotic on hand 24/7. But if you cant find any, I can send you a supply. Only problem with that is, it will take awhile to ship it to you I'm sure but it can be done.
1356964 tn?1302091035 I have tried for the past two days Slippery elm, 1/4 teaspoon as I have read that it is safe for cats with no side effects and for cats with kidney disorders as long as their potassium levels are not low and their calcium levels are not high as hers are not.. Thank you.
Avatar n tn If it is indeed gas, a infant gas relief drop (For Collic) should help. It's like Beano drops for adults and can be given as needed. You will see a difference and could at least rule gas out. I don't understand the antibiotic as 101 temp is normal. You may have seen a slight improvement because sometimes antibiotics have an anti-inflammatory effect. Your second trip made him better for a few days I suspect, because of the pain meds.
Avatar f tn Apparently, cats may have a certain bacteria living underneath their claws that does not harm them, but when they scratch a person with their bacteria-infested claws, the person can become ill, and apparently can present with the symptoms I had. I knew for a fact that none of my cats had scratched me, but my doctor wanted to check for it since I owned cats. I did not have Cat Scratch Disease, either.
Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Avatar m tn If an unfortunate side effect should happen to you, well, I am sorry. I am not charging you for this, you are not paying me for it, so don’t sue me. It’s a responsibility that you have to assume. If you expect a risk-free life, with massive compensation should things don’t work out, then don't try this. So, why is this book manuscript free? The physician who reviewed it said, “The materials cost less than $5.
514916 tn?1224521687 We might just make it, Thank God for my prayers, I gave amoxicillin and pectin last night on my own, and today, we are eating very good, shes stimulated enough to walk, we even walked outside to pee...Oh, my gosh, I have held her, caress, love, keep her calm, talk, its crazy, for days I tried to keep her alive w/me...and I am so proud today, not sure about any damage or relapse could happen... She will never get another rabie or vaccination period, ever, ever in her lifetime.
Avatar n tn I'm going for allergy testing the end of the month. I do have a cat and bird which I have had for years -- my house is clean...not spotless...because after 4 months of feeling like this I really don't feel like cleaning it! I've got an air cleaner I keep running in my bedroom - but I can't tell that it's helped. I just don't know. The only comfort I can give is you're not alone.
Avatar f tn I have 10 mg Prednisone tabs with me but the directions are to take 40 mg for angioedema and gradually decrease dosage. I know that if I take this dosage I will be up all night but am really uncertain about how much I should take. Using Aveeno to sooth the welts with minimal effect. I empathize with anyone going through this experience. Any suggestions appreciated. Am thinking of thinking an immunologist since the allergist was absolutely no health.
4451049 tn?1387157037 The spirochetes can hide their surface proteins, which is what the antibodies look for. They curl up into ring forms like a hedgehog curls up in a ball for protection. They also form biofilms to hide in. In my case, I took insufficient antibiotics when I first got infected. After a week of abx, I got better. Then, I had a relapsing/remitting cycle for nearly 5 years. Once or twice a year I would have "attacks" of severe fatigue, malaise, headache, and loss of appetite.
Avatar n tn perhaps you should consider switching doctors -- just for fresh insight. Maybe they can list for you all the causes for recurring fever (are her hormones ebbing and flowing on a regular basis, even for her age?) that also cause joint pain. And then the most common causes for each seperately...AND then tell you how they have ruled them out -- are there conclusive tests...was she tested specifically for it, etc.? Again, I'm sorry I can't help.
Avatar n tn Hey everybody , thanks for such a quick responce ! Yes I have been diognosed with Hep."c." geno type [1 a] since 2002. I had a biopsy three years ago and it was moderate fibroses . I was woundering if anybody else has insomnia associated with it ? I'm still milling over the realities of treatment.I'm a 56 year old man.I have all the symptoms mentioned and then some . I take colloidial silver,Phyllanthus [milkthisle,dandelion and phyllanthus mixture]and Alpha Lipoic acid.
Avatar n tn I have been through the ringer with my sinuses and infections for quite a while. Seems just when I go to see a new doctor, they get a cat scan and immediately want to do surgery. I have had my MRI’s & Cat scans looked over by internist at Baylor. They can’t see why I would need surgery again other than me and my insurance card and a little co pay. I have to agree with them. I’m not going through that again.
1187071 tn?1279373298 He asked me why I didn't want the morphine that the back up dr wanted to give me I told him I am scared to be on hard stuff since I will be living with this pain for maybe the rest of my life, he said why cause of what happen the last time you was on it? I said yes but Im afraid I will get use to the meds if I start out with the hard stuff.

Avatar n tn The same itching, scratching and weeping (which is a colourless fluid the same as produced by other types of eczema). I used steroid cream for years too but I also didn't think it was good for my body in general. I have now discovered Aloe Propolis cream... it is totally natural and I pop a little in my ears if they feel dry or itchy. It hasn't cured completely yet... but these things take a while... but it is definitely helping and is something I will continue to use always.
