Thanks for the questionCustomer

In direct answer to your question : While I cannot suggest you dose either yourself or another person with cephalexin prescribed for a dog the answer is yes, the antibiotic would to all intents and purposes be the same in both species.

If I have not covered your question fully enough or you would like to ask more I will be online for the next hour or so and I will be at your disposal.
