    For a wound, procaine penicillin G is what most people would use from a feed store (it is refrigerated.) Tylan is more for respiratory or certain intestinal problems. A vet could give you better antibiotics, such as Clavamox or Baytril. Dosage of procaine penicillin G is 1/4 ml or cc given 1/4 inch into the breast muscle once a day for 4 days with a 20 gauge needle. You will need 4 syringes 3ml and 4 needles that are 20 gauge.
