Customer Question

Hi Doc, just can't recall the dosing info for cephalexin in a 20lb dog.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: 16 yr old cocker with a slight recurrance of a skin infection that was previously treated with cephalexin. I am a vet tech and my vet just left for vacation, naturally.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dog Veterinarians generally expect a deposit of about $19 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
