That's what the vet told us to do for the dog. I think a whole pill is too much though.
Ok, @Amiga might know.
Aw, I don't have any experience with the Keflex- I hope casportpony can find confirmation soon.
Just looked it up in one book and that book has a range listed. The most listed is 45mg per *pound* 2-4 times a day, which is pretty close to what my vet prescribed for one of mine.
So yes, one 500mg capsule is way too much for this duck.
How best to give it since it is in pill form ? @casportpony
Ok. How many days should I do that?
Dosing will be tricky because it's a capsule, I think, and capsules a full of little bits. If I've done my math correctly, dose for her should be 1/3 capsule twice a day for 7-10 or 14 days. Can't remember what the vet told me.
Disclaimer: I have no medical training and the information I have given is just my best guess based on the one time I used it and the dosing information in the book "Clinical Avian Medicine".
How did you give it to your duck?
Mine was a bigger bird, and we had 250mg capsules, so we just gave her a capsule. You have to open a capsule, divide it as best you can into three piles, then find a way to get the one of the piles into your duck.
Maybe call a pharmacy and ask if they have empty capsules that you can buy.
