amox tr k clv 875 dosage for my dog
2 Replies RSS
I have a full bottle of these pills and my dog has a bladder infection. He is 126 lbs. Can I give him these? They expire in June so I won't be using them. ## Hi smokey, Based on my research, it should be ok for your dog as long as you're administering the correct dosage. The recommended dosage of Amoxicillin + Clavulanic acid is listed at 12.5mg (per kilogram of body weight). That amount is to be taken twice daily for treating most general infections (including UTI's). If you have any other questions pertaining to proper dosing or administration, you may also want to contact a local veterinary office, since they are well versed in this field of study. I hope this info helps and wish your dog a quick recovery! ## Hello, my 10 pound maltese has an ear infection. I have leftove...

bad infection from a tooth extraction
3 Replies RSS
I had a tooth taking out and then dry socket and now a terrible infection around the next tooth. Pain into my ear and throat. I was on Amoxicillin for over 2 weeks and it is not doing anything. My question is there another Antibiotic out there that would help me better then the Amoxicillin. ?? I was thinking of Keflex maybe ?? The hole from the extracted tooth has not healed at all. ## Keflex is an excellent antibiotic but it's been around a long time.there are much better options from newer more specified antibiotics for your infection type. contact the dentist or oral surgeon that performed the procedure before you develop a cascading periodontal syndrome ASAP. Best of luck. ## Hello, Peggy! How are you doing? Has there been any change? Did your dentist confirm that you had a dry ...
