Reply to michele's Post: She has Carposi Sitoma of the colon(spelling?) she been on prednizone for a year Lastweek she ate a disposable diaper and she passed it, and is deficating again a little. She was on amoxi about a week ago. It's sunday night and I have 500mg tablets for me (MVP) to get her to Monday so I can get her to My VET

I will give you a website to go to for correct dosing. Or you can just try to figure it out based on what the vet gave her last time as there is a range on the dosing.

Where I work, we typcially dose at 5-7mg per pound of body weight two times per day. If she was my dog, I would give her 1/2 tab of the 250mg.

Best of luck toyou and your pup! Let me know if I can help you further.
