From Our Vets
I know I'm probably showing my age with this opinion, but I still find Amoxicillin to be my favorite broad spectrum antibiotic. This drug is effective, inexpensive, and very well distributed throughout virtually every organ in your pet's body. The side effects for pets are usually mild, with the most common complaints from my clients being poor appetite, diarrhea, or vomiting. There have been hundreds of antibiotics approved for usage in our pets since Amoxicillin was first utilized, but few have the proven combination of efficacy and safety that Amoxicillin has demonstrated. Another great thing about Amoxicillin is that it comes in tablet, capsule, and liquid forms. It is still one of the greatest and most frequently used antibiotics in veterinary medicine.
