Hi, this is Dr. Gabby.
Yes dogs can take amoxicillin.
But amoxicillin is not good for skin infections or bite wound infections.
So most likely it will not help.
We normally use Cephalexin for skin wounds.
You can clean the wound with Hydrogen peroxide and apply neosporin or antibiotic cream twice a day.
Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
