Hi, I'm a licensed veterinarian and I'll be happy to help.Are you using the human generic tablets? Or the veterinary liquid preparation?
Expert:  Dr. Drew replied 2 years ago.
Unfortunately, a 10 pound dog cannot safely be dosed with the human pills, as they are much too large. A 10 pound dog would need to receive approximately one-tenth of a 7.5mg tablet, which is basically impossible to do so accurately.
