Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.
If you're treating an infection, the dose we use is 10 mg per lb. That would be 15 mg twice daily in this size dog. You'll have to dilute it down quite a bit to a 50 mg/mL solution and then give 0.3 mL twice daily. To do that, you could add 10 mL of water to a crushed up 500 mg Amoxi.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
