HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this....can you tell me how much your puppy weighs and where on the face the swelling is located?
Ok, I want you to give him 1/2 of a 25 mg Benedryl. Make sure it is pure benedryl and nothing else in the medication.....
what antibiotic did you give him and what mg dose?
Is that clavamox liquid?
ok that should be 50 mg/ml....is that correct?
or possibly 25 mg/ml? Which one?
Should be 50 mg/ml and you should be giving 0.01 mls orally twice daily for 7 days. You can also give 1/2 of a 25 mg benedryl twice daily. Yes the clavamox is 50 mg of amoxicilin and 12.5 mg clavulinic acid
Can I answer any other questions?
icing the area and you can give 1 dose of aspirin only with food. Give (1) 81 mg baby aspirin to reduce swelling with a meal. Do not repeat dose. OK to give 12.5 mg benedryl now and every 12 hours for 3-4 doses.
Can I help you further tonight?
