Default how much antibiotic

Okay, one of my Great Pyrrhs bit my DS Jack Russel. He thought he was going to be the Alpha around here and I guess Rex did not agree.
I am thinkingt of giving him some antibiotics and am wondering what and how much for a 20 pound dog.
Thanks for advice. I sprayed him with scarlet oil, which is great and I have used it with great success on all our critters, but of course he licked it off.

It will depend on which antibiotic, and what form it's in (pills, liquid, injectable)
I'd probably use Penicillin or LA 200

Maybe this will help:

Penn is easier on the animal but not as effective as LA200 which I only use on my cows. It hurts them. Pennicillin isn't as effective and also must be used longer. On a dog I would call a vet.
