Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] Re: Enlarged spleen

I forgot to ask about the Clavamox for controlling spleen size. Would the
dosage be the same as if treating for an infection, etc? Or, is it a lower
dose situation?

Is there any thought or studies with regards to lower dosages for
controlling spleen size? Do lower dosages help at all or much, and would it
(if it is beneficial) delay the drug's efficacy after long periods of time?
The post at the link refers to a 9yr old ferret, whereas Boo Boo is just
under 6. How long is it expected at full dosage for the antibiotics to stop
shrinking the spleen size?
