The following drugs can potentially interact with amoxicillin: chloramphenicol, erythromycin, tetracycline, aminoglycosides, cephalosporins and probenecid. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences any unusual reactions when different medications are given together.

If your pet displays symptoms of an allergic reaction, call your veterinarian immediately or go to a veterinary emergency clinic.
