    If anyone knows clavamox dosing for baby chickens please let me know asap... I think my baby chick may have breathed in some of her liquid vitamins a couple of days ago... Tonight she is having trouble breathing... She has clear liquid discharge from her nose and is breathing through her mouth. I have clavamox pills on hand... Can anyone help me with the dosing?

    Amoxicillin dosage is 50 mg per pound twice a day. You can try dividing a tablet, and mixing with a little thin yogurt. I would be very cautious only giving a drop at a time, with a syringe, letting it swallow. Make sure the chick is drinking plenty of fluids. Hopefully, you can help it.
