I'm sorry to hear of this with Mia. Do you have a human or canine antibiotic at home for which I might be able to give you a dose for Mia?

Well my son is currently taking levoflaxin , do you ever call in antibiotic for like a walgreens
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Levofloxacin shouldn't be administered to dogs due to the possibility of liver problems, joint problems, and tendon rupture. Regretfully, we're not allowed to prescribe through this venue. Perhaps a friend or family member nearby has an antibiotic that might be of value - amoxicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanate, trimethoprim/sulfa, cephalexin?
