Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Keep out of the reach of children.
For animal treatment only.
Do not administer to small herbivores.
Do not treat dogs less than 10kg bodyweight
Do not use in animals with a known hypersensitivity to beta-lactam products.
As with all other penicillins, bacterial resistance to amoxicillin may occur. Thus, antibiotic sensitivity testing should be considered if a clinical condition fails to respond to treatment within 5 days.
Penicillins and cephalosporins may cause hypersensitivity following injection, inhalation, ingestion or skin contact. Hypersensitivity to penicillins may lead to cross reactions to cephalosporins and vice versa. Allergic reactions to these substances may occasionally be serious.
Do not handle this product if you know that you are sensitized or if you have been advised not to work with such preparations.
Handle this product with great care to avoid exposure, taking all recommended precautions.
If you develop symptoms following exposure such as a skin rash, seek medical advice and show this warning to the doctor. Swelling of the face, lips or eyes, or difficulty with breathing are more serious symptoms and require urgent medical attention.
As with all other antibiotics, the product should be used with caution during pregnancy and lactation. There is no evidence that the use of amoxicillin presents any particular hazard either to the dam or to the foetus.
The safety of amoxicillin is typical of other penicillins in that intrinsic toxicity is very low, except in animals with specific allergy to the Beta-lactams, and this seems rare
Store in a dry place. Do not store above 25°C. Protect from light.
Amoxicillin is unlikely to interact significantly with any of the other drugs commonly administered to dogs. It is not recommended to administer bactericidal and bacteriostatic antibiotics concomitantly.
