Antirobe (Clindamycin) has really been used a lot by veterinarians. It has been extremely effective for treating abscesses, dental infections, and some bone infections. We have also used Antirobe to treat certain protozoal diseases. In my experience, this drug is well tolerated and does not appear to have very many adverse effects. I have had a few dogs and cats get diarrhea while on Antirobe, but it is quite rare. Oftentimes, if your veterinarian cleans your pet's teeth, he or she may choose to treat post-dental with Antirobe. This drug comes in liquid, capsule, and tablet form. We're really fortunate to have access to this antibiotic in veterinary medicine.
If you notice any behavioral or physiological changes in your pet while administering Antirobe, contact your veterinarian immediately.
