Hello,

I am sorry to hear you have puppies with pneumonia. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Nuflor is an antibiotic not used much in dogs, and there has not been a safe effective dose published yet. I would not experiment using it in puppies; there are many antibiotics that we know are safe in puppies and have a known effective dose. Clavamox would probably be my first choice for puppies this young with pneumonia.

Let me know what other questions I can answer.

Doxycycline would be another of my first choices.
