Hi,

My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog is injured. The dose of Amoxicillin in dogs is 22mg/kg or 10mg/pound given 3 times daily. If you are working with capsules of this medication, I recommend rounding up to the next capsule size vs rounding down. This medication can also cause an upset stomach in some dogs, so I recommend giving it with food.

I hope this answer helps you. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
