You can't leave your email address on here; but, as for your question:
It is 1.4 mg per pound once a day for pain. If you are questioning it being too much I would call back your vet (or if you feel funny- call a different vet) and ask. While you have them on the phone ask them about what to watch for as far as side effects go.
I gave my Koenig the liquid form twice daily and it worked great for him during his last year as far as pain. Best of wishes.
I have a rescue terrier (jack russell & rat terrier), approximately 9 years of age. He is deaf and after 3 days at home found he has moderate to severe seizures.
I give him between 150mg - twice a day...on his normal days. Abit more if his regular routine is going to be interrupted...i.e. out-of-town, large group of friends that he is unfamiliar with...then I provide 250mg, twice daily.
Hope this helps a bit. It is a wonder drug for "LD."
So using your formula of 1.4 mgs per lb would mean i should give him 168 mgs once per day. My vet has me giving him 2-300 mg pills twice a day for a total of 1200 mgs. I called and left a message regarding my concern and that he should double check and get back to me ty for your info.
