my wife is a pharmasist. most anit-biotics are eactly the same for humans as they are for dogs except the vet charges more because the prescription for your dog isnt subsidised by the NHS. :thumbs:

We use them . Be cheaper to get some penicillin from the greyhound track than go to the vets

My big dog got a whack today ,I gave him flucloxallin, it is for skin ,tears anti bacterial etc.Amoxcillin is more for the throat, and chest it is a broad spectrum anti biotic.

They are fine to use on dogs amoxacillin fluclox for deeper infections and erythomycin for shallow or skin ifections all used on people and dogs, for dogs use a lower dose.

Lordy. Antibiotics are effective if prescribed in the right dose for the appropriate bacteria. Different bacteria will need different antibiotcs. Using the wrong antibiotic or giving in the wrong dose leads to the bacteria building up resistance ie Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) just one example. Basically as we don’t want our children’s future to hold many people dying from what are presently treatable diseases that become untreatable because of ignorance leading to inappropriate dosing I suggest that you pay for and get the right antibiotics prescribed at the right dose for the right type of infection at the vets who should know what they are talking about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
