Different size dogs on same doseage

August 2nd, 2004, 05:15 PM
I have a 45 pound chow mix and a 85 pound flat coated retreiver. Most medications (heartguard, advantage, sentinol) are catogorized for dogs 20-50 pounds and 51 and over pounds (or something like this). I was woundering if it would be harmful to give both dogs the same 51 pounds and over medication. This would save money and make things easier, but i do not want to harm my animals. Please let me know what you think about this. Thanks. :confused:

Thanks for your reply. I was just woundering if 5 pounds made a big difference. If you have not heard of people doing this, then i don't want to be the first.
