Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Synulox/ augmentin question

"What confuses me is that it's 125 mg amoxycillin and 31.25 mg clavulanic
acid per 5 ml. Which ingredient determines the dose? The amoxycillin?
do I add both ingredients together and then figure out how many ml's
10 mg? With the 50 mg synulox tablets I don't know whether they are 50
of amoxycillin or whether both the amoxycillin and clavulanic acid are in
the 50 mg...

From Ulrike"

I am not familar with Synulox. Augmentin is Amoxicillin and CLavulanic
acid and the dosing is 20-40 mg/kg/day divided 3 times a day, and in the
newer formulation is 25-45mg/kg/day divided 2 times daily. It is based
on the Amoxicillin component,and the same dosing can be applied to
amoxicillin alone.

Thank you to everyone who answered my question about the eyelid problem,
I think the consensus was to have it removed, and I was thinking (hoping)
it was nothing. Anyway, I have to bring him for shots soon so I will
have it looked at.

Here is a pic, the underside of it is the same color and consistency as
the underside of the eyelid.
