What are you trying to treat for? Skin infection? Bladder infection?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
i have a dobermen pup that just came out of tape and has some pustuls on one ear that have pus in them.
Expert:  Doctor Wes replied 7 years ago.
For a mild skin infection like this on a 50 pound dog I would prescribe one 500mg capsule orally every 12 hours for 10 days. It will resolve sooner than the 10 days but you will want to go beyond this for a total of 10 days typically.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
i can not find the email that has the accept on it to click can this be sent to me again.
Expert:  Doctor Wes replied 7 years ago.
I don't think it can be sent again but you should be able to access it via your trash bin on your email account. What do you still need help with? I may have to step away for a little bit but will answer when I get back.
