The number of tablets to give your dog each day depends on both their weight and their individual health condition. Here are the general guidelines for most products:
To start, give your dog no more than ONE tablet daily with meals for the first 2-3 days (1/2 tablet if your dog is really little or has a sensitive stomach.) This will allow him or her to adjust gradually to this change in diet.
Then, after the few days we suggest gradually increasing the dosage each day by one tablet until you reach the recommended dose by dog weight:
Under 25 lbs = 1 tablet per day (or 1/2 tablet per day for really small dogs)
25-50 lbs = 2 tablets per day
50-75 lbs = 3 tablets per day
75+ lbs = 4 tablets per day (or more for really large breeds)
However... each dog is an individual with a different health situation, and so you may need to adjust the dosage (giving more or fewer tablets per day) for your dog.
The idea is give your dog just enough each day to create a positive response. A 100 lb dog may respond great to one tablet per day, while a 25 lb dog may need four per day to help their conditions.
Then if you feel it's needed for your dog's weight or condition (eg: digestive problems, or joint stiffness), then you can start to increase the dosage by one per day until you reach up to four per day (larger dogs may require a larger dose.)
In any case please do not to worry... we formulated this product to be totally safe for dogs of all sizes, even at the higher recommended dosage.If you have any further questions about how much to give your dog, or if you want advice on giving a larger dose than four per day, please let us know!
