my dog has an ear infection. a friend gave them to me for her. what is the dosage? she is 35 lbs. these pills are 500 mg and have imprints that say 852 93 93.
Personally, I would NOT give those to the dog. Flagyl the other name for those pills, are a very potent anti biotic and anti protozoan drug. Not all drugs for humans can be taken by a pet and if they can, a lower dose is needed. I have taken Flagyl before and will tell you that it will probably be too strong and has a nasty habit of making somebody almost projectile vomit. If your friend has a dog of about the same size and they were from her/his dog, you might chance it, but, haven taken it myself and knowing how strong it is, I would NOT give it to the dog.
