Hello Jennifer, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.I'm sorry for this concern for Tammy. Human Cephalexin and the kind we prescribe for dogs is essentially the same drug so it would not be harmful to give her what a human would take.The dosage is 10 mg/lb twice a day, with food to prevent stomach upset.While it would be illegal for me to suggest or advise you to give Tammy a drug which was prescribed or dispensed for a human, I can provide the dose which is what I have done.Cleaning with Hibiclens is good as is preventing access to the area. I'm certain that you're being careful not to apply the bandage too tight such that circulation is impeded.I hope this helps. Deb
