This site gives you cautions and dosing information as you scroll down through it
Dosing is based on weight.
Normally antibiotics are given for about 10 days at a time depending on the problem.
This may not be the best antibiotic to use depending on the condition you are dealing with.
Make sure the medication is not out of date.
Consulting with a veterinarian is far safer than home dosing.
Hope this helps you!
