JESSICA L DESROSIERS
A. Amoxicillin is usually given in a dosage of 10-30mg per kg (Your dog is about 60 kg) so a dosage for your dog would range from 600-1800mg twice daily for treating infections.
As with any medication, it is best to contact your local veterinarian for the correct dosage amount depending on your dog's symptoms, infection type and size. Dosage ranges vary depending on the type of bacteria and infection present, and medication choice may be changed depending on the exact cause of the problem. Amoxicillin may not always be the best medication for your dog's symptoms and your vet can tell you if other medications would be more appropriate.
