Amoxicillin/Clavulanic Acid tablets in New Zealand have traditionally contained 50mg of active ingredients so that one tablet treats cats weighing up to 4kg. Clavubactin® tablets contain 62.5mg of active ingredients which means one tablet can treat cats weighing up to 5kg for much easier dosing of animals in the 4kg to 5kg weight range.
Cats and dogs do not adjust their body weight to a tablet, Clavubactin® on the other hand, has been perfectly adjusted to match the average weight of a cat, a medium size dog and a large dog. In most cases one tablet contains the recommended dose. If not, the SmartTabs® provides a solution.
Clavubactin® tablets are developed as SmartTabs® which means that they can be easily divided into equal halves or quarters. This allows for accurate dosing and minimises the risk of under or overdosing for the responsible use of antibiotics. The tablets are vanilla flavoured to improve acceptance by cats and dogs.
