Clindamycin is a lincosamide antibiotic, and is used in the treatment of bacterial or other infections caused by microorganisms. The drug is mainly used to treat oral infections, dental diseases, abscesses, deep wounds, and bone infections. Clindamycin is also a pet antibiotic prescribed to cure dental and bone infections in dogs and cats such as gingivitis, periodontitis and osteomyelitis, pus filled infection sites, bite wounds, abscess, post surgery and pneumonia, and respiratory infections. Clindamycin is also used to treat cats suffering from toxoplasmosis.

The usual dose of clindamycin in dogs is 5 mg per pound (11 mg/kg) every 12 hours or 10 mg per pound (22 mg/kg) every 24 hours orally. For cats the dose of clindamycin ranges from 2.5 mg per pound (5.5 mg/kg) every 12 hours orally to 10 mg per pound (22 mg/kg) every 24 hours orally. The dose and frequency depend on the type of infection treated. In both dogs and cats, clindamycin pill should be given with small amount of water after to encourage the pill to enter the stomach. This is to prevent esophageal injury which can occur from a dry pill sitting in the esophagus.
