Albon

how much do ;you give and how often do you give it to you dog of 8.5 lbs or 8 lbs. and how long
Asked by: Anonymous
Typical doses are an initial dose of 25 mg per pound of pets body weight then subsequent daily doses of 12.5 mg per pound of pets body weight. For an 8-8.5 lb dog, this would be about 200-212.5 mg initially, and then 100-106.25 mg daily. The duration of treatment varies based on severity of infection and type of infection treated. Your veterinarian would be able to guide you on duration of treatment. This medication requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

How long does it take Albon to start working on kittens?

I've had my 9 week old kittens on Albon 3 days with no signs of improvement yet. They are not drinking water or eating. When will it start working?
Asked by: Anonymous
Mel, typically antibiotic/antibacterial medications should show signs of beginning to work by day 3 of treatment. Without knowing what condition is being treated or how severe the condition is, I would suggest you let your veterinarian know of your concern.
