Q. I have two dogs 9.5 lbs and 10.5 lbs. The flea and tick med. Weights on the meds are 4 to 10 lbs. Or 11 to 20 lbs. What do I give the 10.5 lb. Dog?

Answered By

A. Give the drug for 11-20ib. It's better to give a little too many than too less ( because there is a risk that drug won't be efficient ) you can also give 11-20ib drops without a few drops to adjust the dose to the body mass
