You should always consult your Veterinarian before giving any dosage of medication to a dog. The dose is determined by the condition it is prescribed for and usually it is a high dose then a lower dose given over a course of time.


Answer by  DogLover82 (412)

The dosage varies greatly depending on your dog's size and tolerance for the medication. Some dogs can tolerate higher dosages than others. Always give your dog the smallest dosage that is effective for his or her condition.

The dosage is going to depend on the size of the dog. The general rule is 0. 5-1mg per kilogram of dog a day, divided into two dosages. The illness or disease being treated, however, can also affect the dosge. Some severely or chronically ill animals may require a higher dosage.
