Hello, I have a 14 week old pup who has a mild upper respiratory

This answer was rated:

Hello, I have a 14 week old pup who has a mild upper respiratory infection. His regular vet prescribed 100mg amoxicillin two times daily, spaced 12 hours apart, for 14 days.

He has been on it since Thursday.

I just accidentally gave him his second pill 5-6 hours after his first.

What should I do?

Hello Elmer, I'm Dr. Deb. I will do my best to assist you today since the other expert you requested hasn't been on the site for a few years.

I'm glad to be able to tell you that you don't have to worry about Poncho.
In certain situations, we actually prescribe Amoxicillin to be given three times a day (every 8 hours) so the fact that he got it a little earlier than this should not be a problem.

I'd restart his schedule of every 12 hours tomorrow.

I hope this helps and provides peace of mind. Deb
