Animalcare launches UK’s only potentiated amoxicillin that ensures optimal dosing for all weights of dogs and cats

Clavubactin 250 potentiated amoxicillin


Animalcare recently added to its already extensive range of veterinary antibiotics with the launch of Clavubactin® for dogs and cats*. The product is the only potentiated amoxicillin in the UK that allows for optimum dosing across all 3 tablet strengths. The use of SmartTab technology increases accuracy still further with a 4-way tablet split for easy dosing, whatever the weight of the animal.

Clavubactin is available in three optimum strengths, containing in combination 62.5, 312.5 and 625mg (50/12.5, 250/62.5 and 500/125mg of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid respectively). The increased combined level of active ingredients, compared to some other clavulanate-amoxicillin products on the market, achieves recommended target weight dosing (doses always kept at 12.5mg/kg), even with animals of greater weight, minimising the risk of underdosing.

All 3 tablets in the Clavubactin range are divisible into halves or quarters. This facilitates easy and accurate dosing of all sizes of dogs and cats, from as low as 1kg bodyweight (¼ tablet Clavubactin 50) to 50kg (1 tablet Clavubactin 500) and above.

Economical and accurate dosing leads to increased client compliance, while the non-meat based flavoured tablets are appropriate for animals with food sensitivities. The tablets come in aluminium blister strips of ten tablets in five packaging presentations (Clavubactin 50 and 250 are available in 100 and 250 tablet packs and Clavubactin 500 in 100  tablets).

Animalcare Product Manager Tony Liepman said “Clavubactin allows for optimum target weight dosing and together with the accuracy enabled by SmartTabs easy 4-way split, this gives peace of mind to both vet and client.”

Clavubactin joins Animalcare’s extensive range of veterinary pharmaceuticals and Animal Health products, which includes such well-known names as Aqupharm and idENTICHIP, as well as antimicrobials: Cephacare flavour, Amoxycare, Oxycare tablets, Trimacare, Enrocare and Marbocare flavour.

All three presentations of Clavubactin, are available in wholesalers now at a competitive price. The product is supported by dosage charts and dispensing envelopes (the latter is available on request).
