how much amoxicillin would a vet prescribe to a 70 pound 7 year old pitbull for a infected cut on her pad of her foot
I would most likely give about 500 mg orally twice daily for 10 days. Pad injuries take a long time to heal, but don't commonly get infected. You can also soak it a couple times daily in an antibacterial cleaner and keep it covered or bandaged the rest of the time.
