That antibiotic should be safe for your cat when dosed at 62.5 mg per cat twice daily which would be equivalent to less than 1/10 of that tablet twice daily for 5-7 days when treating soft tissue infections. Therein lies the rub; there might be something better to administer and so the search for the cause of his fever by his vet would be prudent. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
