My chin Timmy was just diagnosed with crystals in his bladder. My vet prescribed .85ml antibiotic twice a day, and it looks like a HUGE amount, but he's never had meds before. I'm just asking if you may have given that much to any of your chins. I have nothing to compare it to. Thank you.

I've never giving antibiotics, but from what I've seen others get precribed that does sound like more then what I've seen people say. I would double check with the vet, but I guess it could also depend on the strength and what kind it is. Also I would just make sure it is .85ml not .85mg (which would be .085ml, I think).

Yes it was .85ml, I checked with them 3 times. I took him to to a small animal specialist who told me it was waaay too high, and that a dose that high had killed all the good bacteria in his intestines.
