Health Questions & Answers



My dog started on Amoxicillin. Should I give Probiotics to her while on the drug or wait until she completes it? Some people say that the drug will take away the effectiveness of the probotic. If I should give it while on the drug, how long should I continue the Probiotics and should I double the required dose?

Dear Elizabeth,

You should start the probiotics now and give it at a different time than when you are giving the antibiotics. This helps to reduce the likelihood of developing resistant strains of bacteria. I would continue giving PROBIOTICS for several months to replenish the flora.

Best regards,
