Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. Yes Kennel cough is sometimes treated successfully with Amoxicillin. And the recommended dosage is 10-15mg/kg every 12 hrs.
1 kg= 2.2 lbs to help with your calculations.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with. Also antibiotics are usually given for 10 consecutive days and should not be stopped early or resistent infections can occur. If this doesn't clear things up then it is best to take your pet to your vet for stronger antibiotics, as Amoxicillin may not cover the infection.
