Hi,

My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Mack was bitten by another dog. All bite wounds are dirty and will almost always become infected. Are you planning on taking Mack to the vet tonight or tomorrow?

The amoxi/clav you have is way too much for a small dog his size. You will likely induce nasty vomiting from toxicity.

I would get him to the vet as soon as you are able and they can prescribe the appropriate size tablets.

Does this help? What other questions do you have?

Why can't I do the calculation and cut the tablets?

Because he needs 75mg of amoxi. That is less than 1/10 of the tablet. That's why.
