can I give my dog a small dose of phenazopyridine hydrochloride for a bladder infection? She is an 80 lb golden retreiver.
I would not dose her with anything other than a full course of a prescription suitable for treating this infection. Underdosing, dosing for a short time, exposing the bacteria to a medication without wiping the diease out all can lead to disease resistant bacteria forming.
This particular medication can also cause a dry eye condition in dogs.
I'd see your vet for the right meds for her.
Hope this helps you!
