Was attacked by 2 other dogs, tore his ear, lots of swelling, not eating. Don't like to give pills on an empty stomach. I have injectable penicillian just don't know how many cc's to give him. He is an 85 pound Weimaraner

What type of penicillin do you have, and what is the strength on the label?

I'm here, couldn't find my glasses.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
each ml suspension contains pencillian G potassium 300000 units

H​mmm, that is usually given IV. Give me a minute, I'll check to see if it can be given IM. Are you comfortable giving an IM injection?

says on the label intra muscular only, yes I can give shots no problem

P​en G procaine and benzathine are IM only, doesn't matter as Pen G potassium can be given IM to dogs as well. His dose would be 4mL.

I would also recommend Tylenol for pain- can be given on an empty stomach. His dose would be 400 mg every 8 hrs. No more than 3 days for that.
