Synulox Palatable Drops have a notably broad spectrum of bactericidal activity against bacteria commonly found in dogs and cats. In vitro Synulox is active against a wide range of clinically important aerobic and anaerobic bacteria including: Gram-positive: Staphylococci (including �-lactamase producing strains); Clostridia; Corynebacteria; Peptostreptococcus spp; Streptococci Gram-negative: Bacteroides spp. (including �-lactamase producing strains); Escherichia coli (including most �-lactamase producing strains); Salmonellae (including �-lactamase producing strains); Bordetella bronchiseptica; Campylobacter spp; Fusobacterium necrophorum; Klebsiellae; Pasteurellae; Proteus spp. Clinically Synulox has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of diseases of cats and dogs including: Skin disease (including deep and superficial pyodermas); soft tissue infections (abscesses and anal sacculitis); dental infections (eg gingivitis); urinary tract infections; respiratory disease (involving upper and lower respiratory tract); enteritis.
Dosage and administration
Administration By the oral route. Reconstitution Add 15ml water. Shake the bottle before use. Dosage rate 12.5 mg/kg bodyweight (i.e. 0.25 ml/kg). For the accurate dosing of particularly small patients it is valuable to note that one drop from the pipette provided contains 2.3 mg clavulanate-potentiated amoxicillin. Therefore 5�6 drops/kg twice daily are recommended as a guide. Dosage frequency Dogs and cats should be dosed at the rate of 0.25 ml of reconstituted product per kg bodyweight twice daily. For the majority of infections including those of the skin urinary tract and gastrointestinal tract the above dosing regime is effective. Refractory cases however particularly those of the respiratory tract have shown improved cure rates by doubling the dose to 25 mg/kg bodyweight twice daily (i.e. 0.5 ml of reconstituted product per kg bodyweight twice daily). Duration of therapy Routine cases involving all indications The majority of these cases respond to between 5 and 7 days therapy. Chronic or refractory cases In these cases where there is considerable tissue damage a longer course of therapy may be required in that it allows sufficient time for damaged tissue to repair. Based on clinical trials the following durations are suggested as guidelines: Chronic skin disease 10�20 days Chronic cystitis 10�28 days Respiratory disease 8�10 days
