As an adjunctive treatment (with other medications and behavioral therapy) for situational use for lfears, phobias, and separation anxiety I might dose a dog with 0.01 - 0.05 mg/kg clonidine. A 0.2 mg tablet given to a 20 kg (44 lb) dog would be a dose of 0.01 mg/kg. How much does Teddy weigh, please?
