How would you know an antibiotic is good for a human to take as a medicine?
The antibiotic is safe if it kills or prevents the growth of harmful bacteria without causing side effects in the patient.
No, Vetenarian medicine is medical treatment for pets (like dogs, cats ect) and Human medicine is medical treatment for.... well, humans! 2nd answer: Good answer! I would add that a lot of the problems, treatments, and medications are the same, but there are also a lot of different diseases, treatments and medications, too.
You really need to see a doctor for this problem. It is very contagious especially in small children who aren't really good at washing their hands yet. You could try Bacitracin or triple antibiotic ointment but remember good handwashing is very important! A doctor will sometimes recommend a prescription antibiotic. Washing the area with warm soap and water before applying the antibiotic will help.
That is actually a good question. Medicine helps protect/aide a human beeings body from certain types of ailments or it justs helps you out from small yet annoying problems. Humans can be seen as "earths medicine" Some things that we do may benifit the earth but the wrong kind of medicine could harm it.
It's not a good idea to take old medicine of any kind, some of it spoils and some doesn't, but it's best to air on the side of caution.

Based on my research. Columbia University School of Medicine and Yale Medical School are the most prestigious of them all. But really any good college that you would attend for a degree besides medicine would be good enough. If you would consider going there it probaly is good enough for your standards.
Chemistry is fundamental in learning about Medicine. Without a background in chemistry you would be unable to ascertain how medicine would interact with the human body. You would also not have the background necessary to understand the complex chemical reactions that take place inside children. On a more practical level, without good grades in chemistry you will have a VERY difficult time being accepted into Medical School.
It is never safe to give someone medicine without a doctor's advice. I would strongly suggest contacting poison control if this happens. That said, generally the dose of medicine in a deworming tablet for a cat is pretty small; a typical cat weighs about ten pounds, a typical human fifteen times as much, so a human would need fifteen deworming pills to get the same effect a cat gets from one. However, this is not…
That is an oral antibiotic tablet that may be taken with or without food. Be sure to drink a lot of water each day and to take this medicine at about the same time each day. With all antibiotics, be sure to eat yogurt daily - this will help keep the good bacteria in your stomach. With regards to how much to take or for how long, please ask your Doctor.
No; never ever give a dog human drugs or vitamins or other medicinals without the express recommendation of a veterinarian. Many human drugs can kill dogs. Real answer: That is not true. Most of the medications given to dogs ARE the same as human medications. It isn't a good idea to experiment on your dog, however, decongestants are prescribed for dogs ALL THE TIME, and again, most drugs used in canine medicine are the same…
