My 24 pound dogs has a bacterial infection. I just got 500mg capsal for a gum infection. Can I open capsal and give him half
I can't begin to know how much is safe for a dog. You don't name the drug. Please don't take a chance of harming the dog. It's important for you to use the entire prescription in order not to help create another superbug like MRSA and SARS. Call the vet if you have to. Maybe he has some free samples he'll give you, but he'll probably want to see the dog. Your drug may not help your dog because it may be ineffective for whatever bug your dog has. Different bugs call for different drugs.
