Hello and Welcome to Just Answer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been with Just Answer since March 2006. Its my pleasure to work with you today!

Walter :

It isn't recommended to take your girl off of this medication without her vets consent, but it can be done as long as your vet tells you it is ok. In most cases if the dog has been on the medication less then a year then the vet will start by giving the dog smaller dosages reducing it to 3/4 the amount, then after a week 1/2 then another week 1/3 and then off completely.


This medication should NOT be stopped without your vets consent as it can be dangerous.

I want to start her on a alternative liquid. What is the dangerous you are referring to?

Walter :

I was referring to you stopping the medication completely. But if your switching to the liquid, your vet will likely just have you switch one medication for the other without any problems.


ok thanks
