I have human hctz 10 mg
Dog Specialist: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

Thank you. Go ahead and give her the 10 mg and repeat that dose in 12 hours and then let Lilly's vet know what you've done. It's a safe dose which should do the trick. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
