Easy to administer
VETMEDIN should be administered orally at a total daily dose of 0.23 mg/lb (0.5 mg/kg) of body weight using a suitable combination of whole or half tablets. The total daily dose should be divided into two portions that are not necessarily equal, and the portions should be given approximately 12 hours apart (ie, morning and evening). The tablets are scored, and the calculated daily dosage should be provided to the nearest half-tablet increment.
The examples given in the dosage chart do not necessarily depict the only way to provide the correct dose. Other combinations of whole and half tablets may also be appropriate.
