> Larry, I just ordered Prozac from the web site you gave me, and I am wondering if you know how much to give a 28 pound dog? I hope Prozac does it, because the spinning and slamming of his body against the door is driving ALL OF US crazy. Thanks. -L
The standard canine dose is 1 mg/kg, once a day.
That's 12 or 13 mg/day, more or less. Frankly, I'd start at 5 mg, and only carefully and slowly increase it. Ten mg might be the perfect dose (and the easiest to manage). Embed the pill in an ample amount peanut butter, and it turns into a doggy treat.
