    I bought 125mg amoxilline bottle should i mix whole bottle in 1 litre water? And how much to give him? He is not drinking unless forced. Ate boiled egg half and some yougurt. He weighs i think 1 or less kgs. I gave him table spoon of amoxil! Without mixing it with 1 litre water!

    If he weighs close to 1kg he can have 1 125mg pill twice a day. Give it orally, *not* in water. If he is not drinking you will need to tube fluids to him. Can you get a tube and syringe?

    When you said that it has been 10-15 degrees at night, did you mean Celsius or Fahrenheit?

    If he weighs 1kg you can give him 5ml (one teaspoon) twice a day. Amoxicillin needs to be given at least twice a day.

    What other drugs can you get? Amprolium? Metronidazole (Flagyl)? Some type of de-wormer? Cipro?

    All three can be given together, I think. I know amprolium can be given with all antibiotics and wormers. Will check drug interactions between Flagyl and amoxicillin.

    What amprolium do you have? Powder or liquid? How many mg per ml or per gram?

    What Flagyl can you get? 200mg, 250mg, 400mg or 500mg? The smaller sized ones would be better. At 1kg her would get 50mg orally twice a day.
