Hi Marcia, I know popular opinion is to limit antibiotic use, because it can kill the good bacteria in the gut, but in my limited experience I prefer to leave immune-compromised kitties on it longer. I had one little FeLV pos kitten with a URI that had a 10 day regimen of Clavamox. She was vaccinated a few days later, as she seemed to have cleared the URI. Big mistake, I didn't know any better. The URI was not cleared, just masked by the antibiotic, it came back, lost her to FIP a couple of weeks later. When her positive brother started getting sick soon after, he got prednisolone twice for fever and was on clavamox for months (5, 6?) just in case. He never had any bowel problems from it. My vet finally said she couldn't in good conscious keep prescribing it for such a healthy cat. Had I left his sister on it (and not vaccinated so young) I feel her immune system may have been less exhausted and better able to fight the corona virus that turned into FIP and killed her.
