100%, not only that but you have to administer with syringe.. and as far as im aware thats a complete NO NO... but id still have nora clav as first choice.

There is no law that's states you can't inject a dog yourself

What does it do then if it doesn't kill the infection

Noraclav covers a wider spuctrum of bacteria.

Administering drugs to any dog without getting advice and the nod from a vet will land you with a ban, you can't even buy decent wormers without a prescription

The only downfall with penicillin is too readily available therefore used too much by those who should know better .No antibiotic should be used as a prevention to an infection ,only treatment for first signs .Jabbing a dog every time it sees something vastly reduces its effectiveness when needed .

9 times out of 10 if a dogs is cleaned properly and given the correct aftercare there is no need to be giving any type of antibiotic.Seen too many lads reaching for the needle and probably doing more harm than good after a dogs put a hard shift in.

I disagree, if a terrier is in the ground for a long period and has taken a bit well infection has more than likely entered the bloodstream so all the cleaning in the world won't kill it,it will clean up the bite but won't kill the infection. I have personally made that very mistake on a couple of occasions thinking well it's not too bad,good cleaning and aftercare and the dog be grand only to find next morning dog with a head on it like a  football. I'm not saying always jab but if indoubt do it or use a  tablet form.

Too much oral antibiotics are as bad. Subcutaneous injection works quicker, IM injection quicker again and IV the quickest. Too much oral is as bad for a dog. The main thing is to try and avoid them where possible. 

Some wounds are hard to clean debris from. As said already, withholding antibiotics then the next day lots of inflammation.

Having a head like a football doesnt mean that an infection has set in.Swelling can occur in any wound wether infection has set in or not,Treating with metacam or a similar anti inflammatory will normallyhelp with this and help keep the dog comfortable. An infection in an open wound takes 2/3 days to set in.In that first 24/36hrs your time is better spent making sure the dog is fully rehydrated (just making sure its had a drink isn't enough if its had a grueler)rather than chucking a load of antibiotics in and giving its kidnys something else to try and deal with.Why chuck a lad of stuff in to try and beat an infection that might not even be there?

Thats why i liked that lamlac for terriers after a grueler they seem to drink as much as you put down for em. And 100% not many people understand infection and love jabbing a dog any chance they get
