can I give my dog mucinex maximum strength

can I give my dog mucinex maximum strength?

Hi there

Yes you can.

The dose for dogs of this product is 20mg/lb (or 44mg/kg) given twice daily.

The active ingredient is Guaifenesin which can be beneficial for dogs with upper respiratory issues.

Just making sure - I have "maximum strength mucinex" it is 1200 mg... is that ok that it is not regular mucinex?

Yes that's fine- it means 1200mg of Guaifenesin are in the product- so weigh your dog and work out the dosage-

so a 10lb dog would want 200mg (i'm guessing your dog will be around 40lb??) in which case it will be 800mg- so split the capsule and give 2/3rd of the contents.
