I know in the case of my 2 that can not tolerate Clavamox that they can tolerate Amoxi with out any problems. It seems to be only the Clavamox that brings on the vomiting and loss of appetite.
With those 2, when we need something stronger then Amoxi, we use Baytril, but administer it by injection, just to avaoid any stomach problems.
One of the two can not tolerate Albon, either. Fortunately, when I had some that had coccidia, and was giving Albon to all of them, he was not infected. As a result, we just didn't treat him.
