Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

In regards ***** ***** question, the dose for a dog Lucy's size would be 11mg every 12-24 hours. Of course, if this isn't strong enough for her, then we'd want her vet to use an immune modulating treatment (ie Atopica, Apoquel, or steroids) to counter this for her. But hopefully the antihistamines will do the trick and keep her comfortable.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
