My dog has a tooth infection. Can I give him my penicillin V1.000.000 UI. She is 30 pounds

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infections your dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?

Missy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Missy?

No, is just her infection I need help with nor the night.

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I would rather that you not give the injection

There is always the risk of hitting a vessel in the skin and/or severe allergic reaction

Is there facial swelling? Why do you think there is an infection?

Paul
