Can I divide the k9 advantix dosage according to my dog's body weight?

I just bought K9 Advantix for dogs 10lbs and under for my 3.5lb pomeranian. I'm worried about over-medicating since the dosage is for almost triple his body weight. I read somewhere that you can divide the dosages according to body weight, but I think I read that about frontline. Should I just give him the whole tube or divide it in half? Thanks everyone!

  • I would wait and contact a vet. U do not want to over medicate your dog.

  • Your aren't supposed to but I do. I never have a problem doing it that way. it's cheaper if you buy for a big dog and divide it for smaller dogs. just make sure you do it right.

  • if it says 10 pounds and under the dog will be fine. but you can split it into two doses. i've done it numerous times.
