Can you give Amoxicillin like a pill

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have fish mox and am wondering if I can give it like a pill or do I have to mix it with food?  I've read that 125mg twice a day is the dosage but the lowest fish mox I have found is 250mg.  If I open the capsule and half it into other capsules can I just pill her instead of putting it in food for her to eat? 

 

She won't eat treats readily.  Pilling her would be much easier.  Any advice?

I believe a number of people pill their ducks when necessary - you just need to be sure it goes down the right tube so that it does not go into the lungs.

Please PM me, or use @Amiga in the message if you would like to hear from me soon.

Thanks Amiga. Slipped half a capsule into a pea. Went very well!
