What is Clinvet (Clindamycin) used for?
Clinvet (Clindamycin) is an oral antibiotic solution prescribed to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections affecting cats or dogs. It operates by slowing the reproduction of bacteria cells in the animal's body allowing the immune system to control or destroy the infection. The medication is commonly used to treat conditions such as ear infections, skin infections, urinary tract infections, respiratory tract infections, or infections of the soft tissues. Your veterinarian may also prescribe it for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
