Amoxycare 200 Tablets are prepared as off-white circular tablets scored on one face. The tablets contain 200 mg amoxycillin as Amoxycillin Trihydrate Ph.Eur. in a highly palatable base. Chemically, amoxycillin is 6[D(-a -) amino-p-hydroxyphenylacetamido] penicillanic acid.

Amoxycillin is a broad spectrum semi-synthetic penicillin, bactericidal in action. In vitro it is effective against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria found in dogs and cats which include: Bacillus cereus, Bordetella bronchiseptica, Corynebacterium spp., Citrobacter freundii, Chromobacter spp., Escherichia coli, Flavobacter spp., Proteus mirabilis, Pasteurella spp., including P. multocida, Salmonella spp., Staphylococci (penicillin-sensitive strains) and Streptococci.
Amoxycare 200 Tablets are suitable for use in dogs and cats for the control of infections caused by susceptible organisms including: infections of the alimentary tract, respiratory tract and urogenital tract, eye and ear infections, and skin and wound infections.

Dosage and administration
Administer orally by hand.
The recommended dose, 10 mg amoxycillin/kg bodyweight twice daily for seven days.
The following is intended as a guide:
Dogs per 10 kg: ½ × 200 mg tablet twice daily for 7 days.
or per 20 kg: 1 × 200 mg tablets twice daily for 7 days.

As high blood levels are achieved immediately after oral dosing parenteral antibiotic treatment may not be necessary.
Amoxycare 200 Tablets are often accepted from the hand, however for the treatment of fastidious animals the tablets may be crushed and added to a little food. Any remaining medicated feed should be disposed of at the end of the day.
