Hi this is Dr. Gabby. 600 mg twice a day, for 5-7 days, for a 45 pound dog. However, it has many severe side effects in dogs. It can stop tear production in the eyes which may be irreversible. So your dog would need eye drops the rest of the life. It can also cause liver damage and severe allergic reactions. I hope that helps. Do you have any additional questions?
