Q. Is it safe to give my dog (75 lb GSD) amoxicillin (500mg) for a minor skin wound if she may be pregnant? She also takes 50 mg tramadol on occasion?
A. If the wound is only minor and superficial I would suggest you to clean the wound twice daily and do not give any oral medications. Antibiotics will be recommended only if the wound gets infected. Also, Tramadol should be avoided if possible as this drug is not licensed to be used in pregnant dogs.
A. If is a minor wound possibly won't be necessary to use antibiotics but if your vet considered it was Amoxicilin is one of the safest antibiotics to use in pregnant bitches.
