What Happens If You Forgot To Refrigerate CLAVAMOX?

This article is all about the Clavamox storage guide. This is a broad-range antibacterial formulation usually treats moderate to chronic bacterial infections in dogs, cats, kittens, in fact, all kinds of canines and felines. But in this section, I answered some questions related to the Clavamox (amoxicillin trihydrate and clavulanic potassium) storage, i.e, How long can Clavamox be refrigerated? or Does Clavamox for dogs need to be refrigerated?

Clavamox Complete Storage Guide

Clavamox Storage Temperature

Basically, It contains amoxicillin trihydrate and clavulanic acid. So, here I would discuss the amoxicillin trihydrate storage temperature and the liquid amoxicillin stability after reconstitution

You don't need to refrigerate amoxicillin trihydrate and clavulanic acid preparation. Because It does not needs to be refrigerated. Amoxicillin trihydrate (the main ingredient) is highly stable at room temperature below 25 degrees centigrade.

Although, this does not need to keep in the refrigerator. But here are some precautions you must follow up. Protect it from direct exposure to sunlight, heat, or moisture. Keep out of the reach of children as well.

Clavamox Dosage Form

This antibiotic medicine for dogs is available in pork liver-flavored, palatable, chewable tablets to form as well as liquid oral suspension form for canines and felines. It makes it so easy to administer in pets of all age groups. 

Clavamox Chewable Tablets Storage Temperature

This oral medicine does not need to be refrigerated. As it contains amoxicillin trihydrate (a penicillin-type antibiotic) and clavulanate potassium (a beta-lactamase inhibitor salt) in four different strengths, 62.5mg, 125mg, 250mg, and 375mg respectively.

They don't need to store in a refrigerator because they are stable at room temperature (between 15 to 25 degrees Celsius). Protect them from moisture, heat, and sunlight. Store in a dark place.

Clavamox Drops and Oral Suspension Storage Temperature

This antibiotic oral powder needs to be reconstituted in a sterile water (available by the Zoetis pharmaceuticals). After reconstitution, this is good practice to store it in a refrigerated temperature (between 2 to 8 degrees Celsius).

Is Clavamox OK if Not Refrigerated

This is not a refrigerated medicine. It's not essential to put it in a refrigerator. But it's favorable because if you put it in temperature between 2-8 degrees celsius then it does not lose its taste. Refrigerated temperature means two to eight degrees celsius temperature, not below 2-degree Celsius.

Can You Freeze Clavamox Oral Suspension?

A 15ML reconstituted aqueous solution of amoxicillin trihydrate and clavulanic acid should be stored at room temperature (15-25 degrees celsius). You may also store it in a refrigerator temperature between 2 to 8 degrees celsius but you can never store it at a temperature below 2 degrees Celcius or a frozen temperature.  If the reconstituted oral suspension became frozen, then discard it

Liquid Clavamox Shelf Life

Here we are not talking about the expiry date, you have looked at the bottle. We are discussing What is the shelf life of liquid Clavamox after reconstitution? or How long does liquid Clavamox last after reconstitution?

Reconstituted liqud Clavamox may last 10 to 14 days. Although, amoxicillin trihydrate is not a refrigerated drug. But it is advised to refrigerate reconstituted suspension at 2-8 degrees celsius. 

The oral suspension may last up to 14 days after reconstitution. It means you must discard amoxicillin trihydrate and clavulanate potassium preparation after fourteen days of reconstitution. This is not advised by the Veterinarians, Doctors, and Pharmacists to use this drug after 14 days of reconstitution in dog, cat, kitten, or puppy, in fact, any canine or feline.
