Try it & if it's going to work, it should do it quickly. If it doesn't, then vet.

According to the "Dog Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook", the dosage is 2 mg per pound, every 8 hours. That would be 3 - 25mg tablets every 8 hours. Which sounds like a LOT to me. I'd start smaller.

Our vet says one MG / pound. So, when W was 50 lbs, we gave him two 25 mg tablets.
