Hello there.
Mylicon, with the main ingredient of simethicone, is safe for use in dogs. There is not definitive set dose, but in general you can give a small dog the child's dose and a large dog the adult dose.
Keep in mind, however that it may not solve the gas problem depending on what is causing it in the first place.

Also, there is a recall for some types of Mylicon. Infants' Mylicon® Gas Relief Dye Free Non-Staining Drops with lot numbers SMF007 and SMF008. So, if by chance you have this type do not use it.

Good luck.
