Niz any reason you give half doses? Just curious since you are the one in tech school I am wondering if they are recommending lower doses now.
well what my doc taught me with benedryl, valume, and a lot of pain meds, is that you'll give the first initial dose to get the dog/animal to the desired medicated level, then you'll give a little bit lower dose to keep them at that level. not necessarally(sp) a half dose, but a lower dose then that first initial dose.
in a sense its like boostering vaccines if you get what i mean.
obviously every patient/animal is different and you'll have to call them as you see them, but i have noticed and found that has worked well for patients and i even do this with my dog.
