Questions

fortekor (benazepril) 5 mg

I ordered fortekor (above) and realized it only comes in 5 mg, which is too much for my 7 lb dog. Is the proper dose 0.1 - 0.2 per kg or lb. And can I crush and scale it to proper dose? Thanks jeannette
Asked by: tyler
The recommended dose is 0.1 to 0.2mg per pound; however your veterinarian determines the actual dose that your pet should take.
