General Information on Antirobe
Antirobe is a pet medicine used to treat dental, bone and soft tissue problems caused by susceptible strains of bacteria. It is only indicated for treating bacterial infections in dogs. Susceptible strains of bacteria refer to bacteria that have not yet developed any resistance to antibiotics.
Clindamycin Hydrochloride, the main active ingredient in the drug, belongs to a class of drugs known as lincosamide. The antibiotic penetrates the infected source/tissue of the bacterial infection and suppresses protein synthesis that is necessary for bacterium growth.
Antirobe is available in the form of a capsule. The drug is a prescription medication, so you can buy Antirobe and give it to your dog only after consulting your veterinarian. The medication is supplied in different strengths and is color-coded for easy identification.
