My name is***** Thank you for your question. That antibiotic is not something that we use in small animals. It is used in large animals -- cows and pigs primarily.

If you are looking for a medication for her teeth, clindamycin is used most frequently.

Duramycin injectable may cause nasty local abscesses at the site of injection and I can't recommend it.
