When I was bitten by a cat, turned out to be a neighbor on next road, went to ER (did not think about what might happen) because blood spurting everywhere, they did not have Augmentin - it is too expensive to stock! I swear, that is what the nurse told the doctor so he had me soak my hand in Betadne for an hour and then get the Augmentin at the pharmacy next day. I had let it bleed so it would wash out bacteria and applied a pressure bandage. In case that happens again, I had my doctor give me a script for Augmentin to keep on hand - just in case. Since I rescue injured vultures, coons and others, she did not even question my reason, just gave it to me, especially after I told about the ER episode. ---- Lee Evans <moonsiste...@yahoo.com> wrote: > You would have to take a whole lot of Clavamox to make up the mgs. that you > would need.
