Clindamycin Hydrochloride

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I haven't visited this site in a long time...due to busy work schedule. Last update about my cat, Tabby, was her constant vomiting. But ever since she started eating the Royal Canin Special Formula for sensitive stomachs, she's doing 200% better!!! Thanks for all the input I received. I don't know why I didn't ask sooner.

Anyway...this week I've been giving my cat Clindamycin Hydrochloride liquid for her dental problems. I'm just wondering if taking this medicine have any side effects such as constipation. Tabby hasn't pooped in 2 days & that's not normal for her. Usually she'll go one day without pooping. She's not vomiting her food back up either. It just seems like she's eating regularly and nothing is coming out.

Please advise.

Hmm, it's been my experience that antibiotics tend to cause diarrhea rather than constipation. Tillie just finished a course of Clindacure (Clindamycin) and I almost wish she *had* been constipated!

Constipation is not a side effect of Clindamycin. The only adverse effects/Warnings are upset stomach, and loose stools. Is it possible that she's just not eating as much because of an upset stomach, or if her teeth are bothering her?

Does anyone know if it's normal for a cat to not poop in 3 days? Are there any home remedies that I can try before I have to resort to the vet? Tabby's daily activities seem to be normal...(i.e. eating, playing, drinking...). She does not seem to be in any pain except for one thing. I noticed that her butt area is a bit red. Does that mean she is straining & can't go??? She also is "dragging" her butt across the carpet more than usual.

I would take her to the vet. It's possible that her anal glands need to be expressed. They could be causing pain, so she's not going to the bathroom
