Hello,

Here is the cipro dosage for cats.

In cats, the dose used is 10 to 12.5 mg per pound (20 to 25 mg/kg) orally or intravenously once daily. The total daily dosage can also be divided (split) and given every 12 hours. Cats appear to metabolize other drugs in this class better than ciprofloxacin when given orally, therefore it is not commonly used.

However, if she has a pyometra she needs to be spayed ASAP.

Please let me know how she is doing. Just reply here or if you prefer, we can speak on the phone.
