Please don't be alarmed. I might dose Rio at up to 0.5 mg/kg of amlodipine (Norvasc) or 10 mg for her. These calcium channel blockers are very well tolerated in dogs and so I would expect no adverse effects in a healthy young dog such as Rio. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
