The DH and I both believe in 150-200-lb fish meds. Most recently, we used Cephalexin 500 mg twice a day for 7 days, upon return from mountain, having been eaten by ticks due to our lack of wisdom in taking preventative measures. This was then taken as a preventative measure against any possible tick-borne illness. Tick bites took nearly a month to heal, but, all is well. Gotta love that fish med.
We also have 250 mg. available and will be getting low dosage for our tiniest fish, “just in case”. It’s important that dosage be weight AND age appropriate, and different conditions call for different dosages, at any age/size. I’d recommend looking this up online and keeping it in a Word document (or, whatever format you have), but then printing it off to hard copy and also saving it on a thumb drive, with everything else in your computer.
Servantheart-glad you are both feeling better post bite -antibiotics. With any antibiotic its important to take acidophilus or eat yogurt to keep the good bacteria active while the meds kill the bad bacteria!!!
