Clindamycin is a lincosamide antibiotic used to treat serious bacterial infections, usually those related to infections of the joints and bones. It is most effective against Gram-positive cocci and obligate anaerobes. Birds with osteomyelitis or wounds may be treated with clindamycin alone or in combination with other antimicrobials.
Caution: Poultry receiving this drug are at an increased risk of secondary yeast infections (sour crop). Kidney and liver function should be monitored with long-term treatment.
