Looking for dosage recommendation for my Golden Retriever

Customer Question

Looking for dosage recommendation for my Golden Retriever who is pregnant. She is on 400 mcg 1x a daywhich I normally continue through whelp. She is 63 pounds. Recently I heard she should be on 400 mcg 2x a day and only for the first 30 days and then stop.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. We need to be extra careful with pregnancies, so we'll need to connect you with the Veterinarian ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your Golden Retriever?

I would be happy to help, but what are you giving at 400 mcg per day?

Thanks! Give me a moment to do some research.

Expert:  Rebecca replied 11 days ago.

The published dose for a dog her size would be 120 to 300 mcg per day, total dose. I got that from a reproduction specialist on Veterinary Information Network. That can be continued through the pregnancy.

Let me know if this helps and what else I can answer.
