Hello there,

Te recommended daily doses for dogs are as follows:

Astragalus: 25 mg per 25 pounds body weight- 60 mg in your case

Reishi mushroom: 50 mg per 25 pounds body weight- 120 mg in your case

There is not specific dosage data as to toxicity amounts. You should try to get as close as possible to the recommended amounts.
