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.
