Question Antibiotic question (Clavamox)

For those of you experienced with this nedication or knowledgable,
It hasn't become an issue, but I was just wondering if Clavamox has any side effect that should be watched for? Can it cause diareah or vomitting. If there are any side effects or reactions how long before it usually surfaces?

I thought about this as I cleaned the litter box tonight (everything was fine) & figured it would hurt to ask just in case something does seem off.

There could be some diarrhea and some loss of appetite but this is pretty uncommon. You would probably notice within 24 to 48 hours.

Just make sure she has some food on her tummy when you give it and she should be fine. If you're concerned, you can give some acidophilus 6 hrs opposite the clavamox, which can help keep her intestinal flora more balanced, but it generally isn't necessary.

Thanks guys!
She doesn't appear to be having any problems & I have been giving it to her when I feed her at night. (and in the morning I give it to her just before I leave for work with).

I'm not concerned at the moment but would rather like to know a head of time just to be on the safe side. She has been on it for 34 hours now & has had 4 doses, so far so good.

We go through Clavamox at the shelter by the caseload and to be honest I have only seen it affect very few with diarrhea. Its definitely one of the easier medications for them to take. We always give it with a little bit of wet food on the side (as Jade said). It was recommended to us to give it right after because it helps get the taste of yummy pink bubble gum out of their mouths.

Jade gave great advice We always have given clavamox on a full tummy or at least giving them some soft food prior to given them their dose to ensure they had something in their bellies......I have never had any problems with any of the cats we have now or have fostered that were on clavamox. As Dena mentioned it is one of the easier medications for kitties to take
