Dogs can often take the same medications as humans, but it is important to check with a veterinarian to make sure before administering these drugs. Medications such as Amoxicillin, Clavamox, Otomax, Penicillin, and Tetracycline are safe for both humans and dogs, but vets should be consulted as to safer dosage amounts.

You can give dog's human antibiotic as long as you give the right dose. In addition, it is recommended that you use the right drug for every dog. If an antibiotic does not start to clear up an infection after 4 days, then switch to a stronger antibiotic.
