What is the correct dosage of amoxicillin for a 9 pound dog?
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.

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

It is available as 100mg and 400mg tablets, 250mg and 500mg capsules and as drops containing 50mg/1ml. The usual dose for dogs and cats is 5-10mg/pound given by mouth every 12 to 24 hours. The duration of treatment depends on the cause of the disease and the response to treatment. When water is added to reconstitute the drops, the product should be stored in the refrigerator and any unused portion should be discarded after 14 days. (Sold per capsule)" ( Full Answer )
Do not give Xanax or any other medication to your dog without consulting a veterinarian. Do not take dosage information off a website where anybody can post an answer. Call your vet so you don't accidentally hurt or kill your dog,period.
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.

This varies depending upon the formulation of the penicillin (injectable, topical, oral), the location and type of infection and the overall health status of the dog.

This particular antibiotic might not be benefical for your dog's specific needs or needed. The only answer to correctly treating your dog is to take him or her to a Veterinarian. ( Full Answer )
It GREATLY depends on what type of Penicillin.. for an 80 lb (36 kg) dog the aqueous Pen G (300,000 units/ml) dosage that I would give is as follows:. First dose = 4.5 ml INTRAMUSCULAR. all subsequent doses = 4.0 ml intramuscular every 24 hours for a total of 5 doses. Hope this helps.
That is a question you need to ask your vet. It would be based on your cat's weight.
NEVER give an animal a medicine that is meant for humans unless a VETERINARIAN tells you to do so and tells you the dosage. Online forums like this are full of people who might give you an incorrect answer. Tylenol can be FATAL to dogs.
None. I've been told dogs can take codeine, and Vicodin contains the synthetic version of that, however, Vicodin also contains Tylenol and that is a no-no for dogs: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Can_you_give_a_dog_Tylenol In an urgent situation, I would give my dog a half or whole aspirin (de…pending on their size) until I could go to the store or pet store asap to get the kind specifically made for dogs. Dogs should take the kind of aspirin that is buffered or coated, so as not to injure their digestive systems. Also, don't forget that aspirin "thins the blood" & is liable to make your dog bleed more if you're dealing with an injury or wound situation. If you have an older dog that is suffering joint or arthritis symptoms, Rimadyl is commonly prescribed by vets for pain & inflammation & you can find it available on internet sites that offer pet medications quite frequently. Also, I got one old dachshund to 17 years & another to 14 years of age, pretty pain free using Glucosamine/Chondroitin in a daily chewable, canine tablet. ( Full Answer )

This will vary depending on the formulation of the amoxicillan, the route of administration, if the dog is a senior or has reduced liver or kidney function, etc. Any numerical answer you might receive would be suspect at best.

The proper dose of prednisone for a dog weighing 65 lbs. depends on the severity of the health problem. 2.5 mg of prednisone daily may be enough for a dog with an auto immune disorder. However, some dogs have been on dosages of 20 mg and high dosages of 75 mg twice a day for more severe cases of hea…lth problems. These extremely high dosages cause serious side effects if used for an extended period of time. I don't believe there is a proper dosage of prednisone for anyone nor animals because of its long term effects on the skeletal system. ( Full Answer )
Depends on how severe the infection is. If very severe they can precribe at 1g every 12h

Pharmacokinetics of sodium amoxicillin in horses. Montesissa C, Carli S, Sonzogni O, Garlappi R. Institute of Veterinary Pharmacology, Toxicology and Experimental Therapy, University of Milan, Italy. Abstract The pharmacokinetics of sodium amoxicillin were investigated after intravenous and intra…muscular administration of a single dose of 15 mg kg-1 body-weight to five horses. A rapid distribution phase was noted after intravenous administration (t1/2 alpha about 20 minutes). The t1/2 beta values obtained after the intravenous and the intramuscular administration were significantly different (P less than 0.05). The bioavailability obtained was about 67 per cent. Plasma protein binding, evaluated in vitro, showed that the percentage of bound fraction was 37 to 38 per cent. It was concluded that sodium amoxicillin administration at 15 mg kg-1 four times a day should be effective in the treatment of several systemic infections in the horse. PMID: 3387678 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE] peter van eyk The correct dosage all depends on the horse's weight. Since you didnot provide the horse's weight, the question cannot be answered.All that can be said is to read the label carefully, as dosage isusually given on a per 100 lb or kg basis (# cc/100 lb),particularly for large animals as a horse.
