Hi Jody, thanks for your question.

Clindamycin dosing information is available here: http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/prescription/clindamycin-antirobe The dosing is 5mg/pound, so 60mg every 12 hours for each pet.

However, Clindamycin alone does not treat the scabies mite but bacterial infections that follow. You'll need to employ another treatment. There are LOTS available on the market. You can learn about each of them here: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=2+2111&aid=764 perhaps the easiest is Revolution.
