Amoxicillin dosage for UTI?
« on: August 21, 2012, 01:08:35 PM »
Hello. Can anyone tell me the usual dosage of amox for a 10 lb cat with a UTI? I believe he was given 50 mg once daily for 7 days last time. Sound about right? Thank you for any help you can provide, since the vet can't see him til Friday. So if I have the dosage right, I was going to start him on a fifth of the 250mg amox capsules I have daily. Thank you.

There is more than one vet to go to. Even if its not your regular vet they can still see the cat. Last sunday I had to take my boy to banfield in petsmart for the same problem. It was cheaper than the e-vet which was our other option. Male cats can go downhill quickly and die without treatment.
