W19-038: Evaluation of Feline Urine Concentration of Amoxicillin and Clavulanate

The current study goals are to measure the urine concentration of amoxicillin and clavulanate in 12 cats after oral dosing, so that a urine-specific cutoff dose for determining resistant bacteria can be determined. We anticipate this would result in many feline urine culture isolates being susceptible for these two antibiotics, lowering the use of critical antibiotics. Veterinarians will gain more options for first line, oral, well-tolerated, and affordable treatment of UTIs in cats.
