I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Norocillin is procaine G penicillin which you can dose at 10,000 IU/lb twice daily subcutaneously under the skin of the back of the neck between his shoulders for a minimum of 5 days. Please note that if an abscess has formed, penicillin will have a tough time penetrating into the pus. Abscessess should be lanced, drained, and flushed before antibiotics are instituted. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
