Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
The dose of Xanax (Alprazolam) is between 0.01 to 0.05 mg per pound every 12 hrs. Since Carmen has not ever had this medication, start at the lower dose and give it a trial run before traveling so you know for sure how this will effect her.
This medication is a controlled substance so your vet must prescribe it and will help with dosing.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you
Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
Thanks for your assistance. I will be seeing a vet but I wanted to make sure of the dosage etc So I have something to reference.
