You should not be treating your dog with antibiotics without a prescription from a vet (in which case you would know the dosage to use). Indiscriminate and amateur use of antibiotics results in antibiotic resistance building up in bacteria and this means that antibiotics become ineffective for human use too. One day when you are ill you may need an antibiotic but it may not work because of what you are doing with your dog.

Consult your veterinarian. Do not administer medication to a dog, unless you have specific directions on dosage.

Never never give medication to your dog at home without a Veterinarian being involved. You could cause much more harm than good and even possibly death. Your dog should be examined by your Veterinarian first. The Vet will prescribe the correct antibiotic, if needed, and the correct dosage for the condition the Vet is treating your dog for. Why on earth would you want to give amoxicillin to your dog without having him or her checked out by your Vet first?? Take your dog to your Vet.

The oral dosage of penicillin per pound for a dog should not be determined by any other instruction other then a vet due to health risk.

If you got the medication from your vet, they should have told you. If you bought it online, you can kill the dog if they already have heartworms.

You don't change the dosage. You were given the necessary dosage. It will be given to the dog long before the expiration date arrives.

Ask a vet because your dog could be a great dane or a miniature poodle. The dosage would need to be adjusted.

Whatever dosage the veterinarian recommended.

It depends on the weight of the dog. A dog on prednisone should be monitored by a vet. Take it to the vet.

Yes. Diazepam for dogs is the same formula used for humans. The dog dosage is .25-1mg per pound.

Ask your vet.....They know the correct dosage. It depends on the size and allergy rate of the dog, so its not easy to determine.
