Hello I'm still waiting ...

You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.

Norco (hydrocodone + acetaminophen) can be useful for dogs such as Rosie. How much does she weigh and which strength Norco do you have?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
She used to weigh 22.5 but right now I'm not sure and I have two different doses 5-325 and 10-325
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The 22.5 was a couple months ago
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 9 months ago.

Thank you. Using the 10-325, dosing a 22.5 lb (10 kg) dog with 1/2 tablet every 8-12 hours should be helpful. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
