    Hi, luckily I haven't had any issues requiring antibiotics in years and have forgotten the dosage - one of my does got bite by a dog and has 2 deep puncture wounds which I cleaned out with peroxide then filled with topical antibiotic cream, then sprayed it with the silver (alum) spray but really would feel better if I got her on some PCN - if I remember right I will need to give it for 5 days but can't remember how much to give - any advice is appreciated!

    1cc per 20 lbs twice a day.

    I estimate her weight at 150lbs so 8cc 2 times a day for 5 days is what I need to do - thank you very much
