Clindamycin is an antibiotic used for treatment of a number of bacterial infections, including bone or joint infections, pelvic inflammatory disease, strep throat, pneumonia, middle ear infections, and endocarditis. It can also be used to treat acne, and some cases of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Clindamycin is used to treat a variety of infections in dogs and cats. Its indications in dogs include Staph pyoderma, wounds, abscesses, dental infections, osteomyelitis, susceptible hepatobiliary or respiratory infections, anaerobic infections, intra-abdominal sepsis, actinomycosis, some methicillin resistant Staph infections, and susceptible protozoal infections, including Toxoplasmosis. It is used for very similar indications in the cat.

Clindamycin is considered the treatment of choice for clinical Toxoplasmosis in both dogs and cats. The dose used for the treatment of Toxoplasmosis is generally higher than that for susceptible bacterial infections. Some improvement of clinical signs usually occurs within the first 48 hours of treatment, although neurologic deficits, muscle atrophy, and ocular lesions may take longer to resolve.

When clindamycin is used to treat mixed bacterial infections, it may be combined with aminoglycosides, 3rd generation cephalosporins, or flouroquinolones to provide adequate gram negative coverage.

Side Effects
* Gastrointestinal upset including vomiting, diarrhea, and possibly bloody diarrhea. * * * These side effects appear to be due to local GI irritation. Injectable clindamycin does not cause GI distress.
* Esophagitis, esophageal stricture, and hypersalivation. Clindamycin should be given with food to minimize the possibility of esophageal injury.

Precautions
* Animals with severe kidney or liver dysfunction should be given this drug with caution and may need to receive a lower dose.
* Clindamycin crosses the placenta and is present in milk. Nursing puppies or kittens may develop diarrhea.
* Clostridial overgrowth with pseudomembranous colitis has been reported in humans. It has not been reported in dogs and cats.
* Clindamycin should not be used in horses due to the potential for diarrhea and C. difficil overgrowth. There are isolated reports of its use in very young foals for the treatment of susceptible osteomyelitis.
