Bacterial Resistance

Bacterial antibiotic resistance is a growing problem in veterinary medicine.[1] Clavulanic acid inactivates beta-lactamases which are a common resistance strategy in gram positive bacteria. Synulox is reported to be effective against clinical Klebsiella infections, but is not efficacious against Pseudomonas infections.
