Thank you for that information. That would be an 800mg. tablet
Because Maggie is only 8 lbs., I don't think you could cut the tablet into a small enough piece, to administer. The dosage is 13 mg. per lb. by mouth, every 24 hours, or 6.5 mg per lb by mouth every 12 hours. The tablet is bitter and causes foaming at the mouth, which is not dangerous, but uncomfortable for the cat.
I would not take a chance and give her a medication that was not prescribed for her, but either bring her back to the vet for the tests I mentioned previously (urinalysis/culture) or if she's had these tests, just request another medication and get her started on another class of antibiotic that will resolve her infection, if she does, indeed have a bacterial, urinary, kidney or bladder infection. She could have a fungal or viral infection, as well.
It might also be a good idea to have a routine blood test performed, to see if all her values, including liver and kidneys are within normal limits. This will also allow her vet to prescribe the most appropriate medication for her condition.
I hope all will be well with Maggie and please let me know how she's doing and what medication your vet decided to begin her on, since the Amoxicillin helped, but did not eradicate the infection. Thank you!
