What is Goclin Tablets ?
Goclin containing Clidamycin is an antibiotic useful for the treatment of soft tissue, dental, and bone infections caused by susceptible strains of bacteria.
Cats and Dogs
How it Works:
The active ingredient Clindamycin is a bacterial protein synthesis inhibitor. It inhibits ribosomal translocation by binding to the 50S rRNA of the large bacterial ribosome subunit.
Antibiotics can cause diarrhea. If the diarrhea is watery or has blood in it, call your veterinarian. Do not use any medication to stop the diarrhea unless instructed by your veterinarian.
What happens if I miss giving a dose:
Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and give the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.
What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Clindamycin to my pet:
Give this medication the entire length of time prescribed by your veterinarian. Symptoms may get better before the infection is fully treated.
