Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Generally speaking, we do find that the doses for each do tend to be similar if not the same with these two. That said, we do always need to check for the individual dog since each brand is made by different companies.( And that means that there is always a small chance that their inactive ingredients or manufacturing process could alter the drug bioavailability and therefore lead to a slight dose alteration requirement for some dogs). But again I'd not expect Leo to require a major dose change despite a brand change like this.
I hope this information is helpful.
If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!
All the best,
Dr. B.
