Hi, this is Dr. Sara. You can give her half tablet once daily. What dose was she put on?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
2.27mg per pound of bodyweight
what about the hairs on her paws from keratin?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Sara, Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

Hyperkeratosis on the pads is a really common thing that can happen with age. If it not bothering her, you can leave it alone. You can also keep the keratin fronds trimmed with scissors. To soften the pads, you can use salicylic acid lotion and petroleum jelly OR propylene glycol soaks mixed 50:50 with water. Either of these will help soften the keratin. You can find these products on amazon pretty easily. Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other questions. Have a great day!
