Customer Question

Good afternoon:
My name is ***** ***** SC.
Yesterday, We purchased Sentinel Heartworm meds from a "stop-and-shop" vet. Got the 51-100 lb weight/dose for our 100 lb dog. When asked about our two 10-12 lb dogs, he told us to quarter a tablet and administer 1/4 each. Both dogs appear sleepy.
Were they given too much for their weight?

Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. Thank you for your question. How long ago did you give the 1/4 of the tablet to each of these dogs? Are they on any other medication or have any other health issues?
