Customer Question

Dog is on250mg of amoxyclav for teeth out 16 aug. Dosage was 1/2 tablet every 12 hours. I have missed dosages so there still 4 whole tablets left. Do I have to continue dosages now so long after the operation?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?
Customer: Teeth out 16 Aug - no apparent problem since then. So is it necessary to slavishly complete the course?

Customer: Nowhere.
JA: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?
Customer: No.
JA: OK. Nothing visually obvious. Is the dog eating normally?

JA: OK. No obvious problems there. How is the dog behaving differently?
Customer: Behaving normally.

No, there would be little benefit at this late date unless active infection were still identified in Jacob's mouth. His vet should recheck the extraction sites to make sure that they've healed well and infection is gone. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
