Clavaseptin is known as a potentiated antibiotic. It contains two ingredients which work together to significantly increase the effectiveness against certain bacteria. The main antibiotic ingredient (amoxycillin) can be inactivated by certain types of bacteria, rendering them resistant. However the second ingredient (clavulanate) prevents the bacteria from inactivating the antibiotic, allowing the antibiotic to kill the bacteria. Hence Clavaseptin is active against a wide range of bacteria and this combination has become one of the main antibiotics used in veterinary medicine. Tablets are normally given twice daily at a dose rate of 12.5mg/kg bodyweight.

Eye infection


Is this medication good for eye infections

  • VioVet Staff

This is an oral antibiotic. It will help treat infections but whether it helps a certain eye infection depends on what the diagnosis is. I recommend discussing this with your vet, especially if you think your pet has an eye infection that needs treating.

Anne Ellis

Can clavaseptin have any side effects for instance your dog looking lethargic and not interested in anything.

  • VioVet Staff

The adverse reactions as per the datasheet are as follows:

V_omiting and diarrhoea may be observed very rarely. Treatment may be
continued depending on the severity of the undesirable effect observed
and a benefit/risk evaluation by the veterinary surgeon._
Hypersensitivity reactions (allergic skin reactions, anaphylaxis) may
be observed very rarely. In these cases, administration should be
discontinued and a symptomatic treatment given.

This does not include lethargy, I recommend discussing with your vet why this is occuring. It may be related to the condition they are trying to treat.

Treating an urinary infection


Looking at the difference between clavaseptin vs. clavamox in treating a urinary infection in a dog with elevated liver enzymes.

  • VioVet Staff

This is like asking the difference between the Boots version of paracetamol and Tesco's. They are both manufactured to the same standards, they contain the same active ingredients and essentially there is no difference. Both antibiotics are equally acceptable to use when there has been an element of liver damage, which is what causes elevated liver enzyme levels in the blood. Likewise they are both indicated for urinary tract infections. More than that it is impossible to say. The choice of antibiotic is down to your vet, who is familiar with your dog.

Drug interaction between clavaseptin and prednisolone


My cat is finishing up her last few doses of clavaseptin. She was given prednisolone a couple weeks prior from another issue..can I start giving her the prednisolone or do I need to wait a while after she finished her clavaseptin?

  • VioVet Staff

These two medications are often given at the same time, so I would expect to treat the two conditions as appropriate for each. There is no general requirement to not give the two together. Howevere, prednisolone can reduce the immune response (especially at higher doses) so it might be best to ensure that any infection is clear before starting prednisolone again. This is something you should check with your own vet who is familiar with the precise details of this case and will be able to provide more relevant advice.
