Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Mack was bitten by another dog. All bite wounds are dirty and will almost always become infected. Are you planning on taking Mack to the vet tonight or tomorrow?
The amoxi/clav you have is way too much for a small dog his size. You will likely induce nasty vomiting from toxicity.
I would get him to the vet as soon as you are able and they can prescribe the appropriate size tablets.
Does this help? What other questions do you have?
Because he needs 75mg of amoxi. That is less than 1/10 of the tablet. That's why.
Best of luck to you and your pup.
How is your pup tonight? How is the wound doing? Do you have any more questions?
Thanks so much for the update! I'm glad to hear he is doing well.
