How much does your dog weigh?

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question

ok,so your dog really does need to see a vet.....I suspect there is a pneumothorax based on your description......or bleeding into the lungs.....as far as getting antibiotics the only thing you can do is go to a feed store or farm store and get some injectable Penicillin and try this but it probably will not work..... I would try to get the combi Pen...let me see if I can find a link to show you what it looks like....

above is the combi penicillin for dogs and it is dosed at 1 ml or cc per 20 pounds.....so if you have a 60 pound dog they would get 3 mls under the skin...if your dog is 80 pounds they would get 4 mls under the skin and so on.....valley vet supply carnies this but you can also find it at many feed stores...... the combi pen is nice because it only has to be dosed once every 48 hours.... I hope this helps. DRB
