How to use Amoxycare
Amoxycare (Amoxicillin Trihydrate) is a type of penicillin antibiotic used for feline and canine infections caused by bacteria. Its mechanism of action is interfering with bacterial cell wall synthesis. This medicine is able to work against many different strains of microorganisms, including both gram negative and gram positive. E. coli, Pasteurella spp., streptococci and many others which are considered susceptible to it.
Veterinarians often use it to treat cystitis and urethritis, as well as upper and lower respiratory infections such as sinusitis, pharyngitis and bronchitis. This semi-synthetic penicillin acts on the bacteria and it irreversibly damages the cell wall peptidoglycan (the amino acids which form the cell walls of the bacteria), which causes the cell walls to fall apart. As a result of this, the bacteria are unable to survive and the symptoms of the infection can be treated.
Amoxycare (Amoxicillin Trihydrate) is provided in the form of 200mg strength tablets which are intended for administration to the pet by mouth. Owners may either give the tablet directly to their animal or else mix it in with the food. Veterinarians generally calculate the correct dosage based on the animal`s weight at a rate of 10mg per kilogram (equal to one 200mg tablet per 20 kilogram), administered twice per day for a period of 7 days. As the dosage can vary for each animal, it will be necessary to follow the instructions given by the veterinarian.
