Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
I'll be happy to help you with Little Buddy today but I need more info.1) When did these symptoms start? 2) For what purpose did you start giving the penicillin? 3) Are you giving 5cc or 0.5cc? How often are you giving it? 4) Is he still eating and drinking well? 5) Has any blood work been performed?
First things first, I need to know if you are giving 5cc or 0.5cc. If he is only 8-10 pounds, he's a very small dog and we need to be careful with the dosing or you may harm him.Second, I need to know the concentration on the bottle. You can send a picture of the label, if you wish. This should say X number of units per cc or per mL.
And have you been giving 5cc or 0.5cc (5ccs or one-half cc)?
