This answer was rated:

Our puppy got bitten by our other dog and his nose is swollen and is oozing. Puppy got bit 2 days ago. How much pcn should he be given. I have 250 ml/ml inj. Pit Bull puppy 8 weeks old and weighs about 5-8 lbs.
You can also use a warm damp compress on the area to increase circulation and draw infection.
I use neosporin or triple antibiotic on bite injuries too.
You can read aboue penicillin use in dogs here and just scroll down this page for info on dosing by weight

thanks for the help will try the neosporin and compresses before the pcn.
You are welcome. You can leave off the bandaging too as sometimes its better for the injury to see open air.
If your pup seems really ill you may want to get the little one in to see your vet.
Thanks for the above accept!
