The recommended dose when addressing feline herpesvirus (FHV-1) based upon pharmacokinetic studies is now 18 mg/lb thrice daily although lower dosages or dosing frequency may yet prove efficacious. 18 mg/lb x 7 lb ~ 125 mg thrice daily. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
