The doseage of amoxicillin depends upon the formulation, the route of administration, the infection being treated and the dog's overall health status. You would need to ask your veterinarian this question, particularly since in the United States at least amoxicillin is a prescription-only drug that you can't give to your dog without a veterinary prescription.

Amoxicillin should never be given to a 21-month-old without a prescription from a doctor, who will give you a correct dosage.

No. It is not too much. Upto four grams of amoxicillin is given in typhoid/day for ten to fourteen days.

Yes dogs can take Amoxicillin but call your vet to see how much first.

Amoxicillin should not be given to a cat unless a vet has prescribed the medication because a cat is not genetically the same as a human. Giving a cat medication that is for humans could kill the cat.

The VETERINARIAN should have told you this when they prescribed it!

I advise you to take your little one to the doctor instead of relying on idiots from the internet. Use your brain a little better than that!

One professor of paediatrics from US had written a book in late 1970's, 'Infectious diseases of paediatrics'. He called ampicillin (and of course amoxicillin) as 'poor choice' to treat the sore throat. The reason was given that at times, you have Epstein Bar virus causes sore throat. When ampicillin (or amoxicillin) is given to such patient, 100 % patients get rash on the body. So you should use the penicillin V to treat the sore throat. Alternately the azithromycin.

None, it is an antibiotic and should only be taken at the direction of a medical doctor.

Amoxicillin is available only through a licenced vet. He will know how much to give the horse.

I'm neither a doctor or a pharmacist, but I do know that benadryl (Diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine and Amoxicillin is an antibiotic so they are much different drugs. If you have questions, you should ask your doctor or pharmacist.

It should be used only when the patient is allergic to penicillin.

In children the dosage is determined by body weight. It also depends on the severity of the condition. Lower limit of the range is given for mild infections and higher limit for more severe infections.

Your doctor will give you the proper dose when they provide the prescription.
