Clavamox for Humans | Can Humans Use Clavamox?

The following article explains, Why we should not use veterinary drugs in human beings? The possible side effects or adverse reactions that may occur by using veterinary drugs in humans. Veterinary medicine usage in humans may cause some side effects like vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, bad breath, upset stomach, abdominal pain, etc.

It's significantly labeled on all veterinary drugs that they are not suitable to use in humans.

Clavamox is the trademark of Zoetis Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Pfizer pharmaceuticals company. ZOETIS pharmaceutical is famous for his work in the animal drugs industry. This company has provided so many beneficial veterinary drugs to treat chronic diseases in animals such as kittens, pets, cats, foxes, lions, etc. I don't really understand why people want to consume veterinary medicines that are specially formulated for animals. 

Vet Antibiotic for Humans

Like, so many folks look on the web, try to know How to use Clavamox Chewable Tablets (a veterinary antibiotic) in humans? Probably, they like pork. These chewable tablets are available in pork liver-flavor.

Why Use Clavamox for Humans?

Remember, you don't need to use veterinary medicine for yourself or someone else (humans). In the case of Clavamox which contains amoxicillin trihydrate and clavulanic acid (clavulanate potassium), probably, you are confused as this antibiotic preparation (amoxicillin trihydrate and clavulanate potassium) also treats a broad range of bacterial infections in humans as well as in animals.

Amoxicillin trihydrate and Clavulanic acid preparation treat a variety of aerobic as well as anaerobic bacteria's infections in humans. But, you don't need to buy Clavamox, an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved drug to use in animals (only).

Because the same preparation is available by the brand name "Augmention". Augmentin is a Glaxosmithkline pharmaceutical product, which contains the same preparation (amoxicillin trihydrate and clavulanic acid) as Clavamox.

Difference between Clavamox and Augmentin

Clavamox is the trademark of Zoetis Pharmaceuticals that contains amoxicillin trihydrate and clavulanic acid, uses to treat all kinds of bacterial infections in animals like pets, cats, etc. It's available in chewable tablets are oral drops form. Dogs and cats easily accept these chewable tablets due to their taste (pork liver-flavor). It's FDA approved drug to treat diseases in canines and felines.

Augmentin is the trademark of GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) Pharmaceuticals that also contains the same ingredients (co-amoxiclav) as Clavamox i.e, amoxicillin trihydrate and clavulanic acid. But Augmentin is FDA approved to treat infectious diseases in human beings. 

Augmentin (Amoxicillin trihydrate and Clavulanic acid) for Humans

It's available in 375mg, 625mg, and 1000mg film-coated tablets form for adults as well as 125mg/5ml and 250mg/5ml oral suspension form for children below 12 years of age. Augmention drops (62.5mg/ml) are also available in the market to treat infections in children below 2 years.
