Vemox 250 (Amoxicillin) is a medium-spectrum antibiotic for cats and dogs belonging to the penicillin class. This drug inhibits the growth of bacteria by preventing the bacterial cells from forming walls. Amoxicillin should only be used to treat bacterial infections, not viral and parasitic infections.

Amoxicillin comes in the form of trihydrate, which is the active ingredient in these capsules. Amoxicillin spreads easily into all body tissues and fluids except the brain and spinal fluid, which ensures wide coverage.


This antibiotic for dogs and cats should only be used in cases that have been shown to be bacterial infections. It should not be used on animals that are hypersensitive to penicillin and on animals raised for meat, as amoxicillin is protein-binding in nature. Amoxicillin tablets are contraindicative with certain drugs such as allopurinol and erythromycin. Capsules are slow to dissolve so it may take time for the pet to show noticeable signs of improvement.


Vemox 250 (Amoxicillin) is available in 250mg and 500mg capsules. The recommended dose of amoxicillin in dogs and cats is 5-10 mg / pound every 12-24 hours. Amoxicillin can be given with or without food as it is stable in gastric conditions.


Amoxicillin capsules could cause insulin allergy reactions in some animals that could have symptoms such as rashes, fever, swelling of the face or limbs, breathing, rapid heartbeat, and imbalance. Overdose can lead to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain, while abnormally high doses can lead to acute oliguric kidney failure or hematuria. Other side effects from using amoxicillin include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea that need urgent medical attention.
