Question
Dear Kevin

Is Penicillin antibiotic considered as a useful treatment for Pets viz Dogs, Cats, Horses, Rabbits etc?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Hi Prashant,

I understand that you have to be very careful with antibiotics, Penicillin is very toxic to guinea pigs for example. As for other animals I do not know as I studied Chemistry and Thermodynamics not animal pharmacology.

Best wishes
Kevin
