    30mg/kg (665mg/50 pounds) twice daily . The most common tablets are 960mg. = one 960mg tablet per 70-75 pounds twice daily.

    If yours are not 960 adjust accordingly. I have never used it, just what is in my notes.

    I think the 960 is the 800 + the 160?

    Thanks a bunch!

    ahh, yes. 800 of one drug and 160 of the other. Makes sense....sorta.

    The combo drugs confuse the heck out of me. Clavamox is another.
