Simethicone or Gas-x is used on a variety of pets and the dosage can vary depending on what the pet is. Small pets like rabbits and guinea pigs are given about 1cc when they are being treated for a gastrointestinal illness. A dogs dosage will vary with the weight while a cats is pretty much the same unless they are extremely heavy. Here is a chart for dogs and cats. I hope this helps.

GAS-X Dosage
Dogs Cats

small ¼ adult dose ¼ adult dose
medium ½ adult dose
large 1 adult dose
