If I can't give the liquid amox to the kitten, besides a trip to the doc.what should I do? What I do know is it will certainly die from this infection which I know is the same thing my other is being treated for which is upp.resp.inf.

Hello. Thanks for the question. You can give liquid Amoxi to these kittens- it is safe. The dose I typically give is 10 mg per kg (5 mg per lb) body weight every 12 hours for 7 days. You'll just have to weigh them and then check the mg per mL on the bottle and figure out the dose. If you have trouble figuring it out, let me know what they weigh and the mg/mL on the Amoxi and I can help you.
