Juroclav

Juroclav

Broad spectrum antibiotic tablets

Juroclav combines trusted actives amoxycillin and clavulanic acid for broad spectrum oral treatment of bacterial infections in dogs, cats and calves.

Resistance to many antibiotics is caused by β-lactamase enzymes which destroy the antibiotic before it can act on the bacteria. The clavulanate in Juroclav counteracts this defence mechanism by inactivating the β-lactamases, thus rendering the organisms sensitive to amoxycillin’s rapid bactericidal effect at concentrations readily attainable in the body.

Juroclav 50 and 250 tablets: Clinically, Juroclav has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of diseases of cats and dogs, including skin disease (deep and superficial pyodermas), urinary tract infection, respiratory disease (involving upper and lower respiratory tract) and enteritis. Juroclav tablets have a notably broad spectrum of bactericidal activity against bacteria commonly found in cats and dogs, and are indicated for the oral treatment of bacterial infections caused by susceptible organisms.

These include enteritis and respiratory infections in calves and dogs and skin infections in dogs.

Dosage

For oral administration only. Juroclav 50 and 250 Tablets may be accepted from the hand, or alternatively, the tablets may be crushed and added to a little food.

Species Dose
Calves Dose rate is 6.25 mg/kg (1 x 500 mg tablet/80 kg) bodyweight twice daily. Use a higher dose rate of 12.5 mg/kg (1 x 500 mg tablet/40 kg) bodyweight for the initial dose and for severely affected calves. Treatment should be continued until 12 hours after all symptoms have subsided. For example, a 40 kg calf requires one Juroclav 500 tablet initially, followed by one-half of a Juroclav 500 tablet twice daily. In severe cases, one Juroclav 500 tablet twice daily should be given.
Cats & Dogs The standard dose rate is 12.5 mg/kg (1 x 50 mg tablet/4 kg, 1 x 250 mg tablet/20 kg, 1 x 500 mg tablet/40 kg) bodyweight twice daily. Tablets can be halved or quartered as necessary. For the majority of infections, including those of the skin, urinary tract and gastrointestinal tract, the above dosing regimen has been found to be 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.

Withholding Period(s)

Calves: DO NOT USE less than 4 days before slaughter for human consumption.
