Yes, Flanigan should tolerate the Viagra (sildenafil) well. I dose it at up to 1.4 mg/lb when treating pulmonary hypertension in dogs. That would be equivalent to ~125 mg for Flaningan! I wouldn't expect any adverse effects although cutaneous flushing of the inguinal region (groin) has been reported and GI effects (vomiting and/or diarrhea) are possible. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Hi Mark,
I'm just following up on our conversation about Flanigan. How is everything going?
