thank you, I know what you mean but where do some aswers in here come u saying 4 oz is a cu that is a half of cup. If due to the size of the kibble it would be nice if the companies put 4 oz equals a cup. They all want you to overfeed the dogs. My 85 Catahoula eats the same amount as the 40 lb beagle. I always off her more but he does not want it but the beagle would never turn down food.
Weight: 3 - 8 lbs. Unique Fact: One of the most gentle mannered dogs with a lot of energy and very playful, making them great family dogs.

My 9 pound dog eats 1/4 cup kibble with a tablespoon of topper, and a splash of plain homemade chicken broth or water added twice a day. Maybe a 1/4 carrot once or twice a day for a snack.
She has maintained this weight for .8 years.
She recently had a senior workup, all labs within normal limits. Teeth look good (brushed daily)
Sure she acts like she is hungry, but they learn to wait for meal time. If they can work you, they will.
See if she likes carrots? Don’t be alarmed if you see carrot chunks in their feces, it’s undigested fiber. It doesn’t hurt them. However, too much may cause loose stools. Weight: 4 - 8 lbs. Unique Fact: These elegant dogs have Einstein-like smarts and they make excellent family dogs.

Note: Because acetaminophen is not commonly used to treat animals information is limited about its safety. For this reason you should talk to your vet to discuss the best possible treatment options before giving Tylenol to your pet.

Before use you should check the medicine’s packaging to see if acetaminophen is the only active ingredient. Some products containing additional ingredients such as codeine can also be used to treat dogs but the dosing may be different. When using medicines containing acetaminophen as the only active ingredient (e.g. the plain Tylenol formula) a dose of 6.8 mg/lb (15 mg/kg) can be given every 8 hours.

Refer to the chart and calculator below to find the right dosage for your dog.

Note: The following dosages are often used when treating dogs with the original 1.75% Pepto-Bismol liquid (17.5 mg of bismuth subsalicylate per milliliter). Always seek approval from your vet before use.

To treat acute diarrhea, 0.5 mL/lb (1 US teaspoon for every 10 pounds your dog weighs) can be given every 4 to 6 hours for 5 days. The dosage can be higher depending on how severe the symptoms are and other contributing factors, with a maximum recommended dose of 0.9 mL/lb to be given every 6 to 8 hours. Shake the bottle well before use.

A dosage of 0.5 mL/lb is shown on the chart below:

If you are using Tylenol No. 4 the dosage should be based on the codeine content. The recommended dosage is 0.5 – 0.9 mg/lb codeine every 6 to 8 hours. This means a dog weighing 60 lbs could be given half of one tablet (30 mg codeine and 150 mg acetaminophen) per dose.

Degenerative Myelopathy: A dose of 2.2 mg/lb may be given to German Shepherds once daily to treat degenerative myelopathy. Do not exceed 9 mg/lb on any day.

The usual dosage of Benadryl for dogs is 1 mg/lb every 8 to 12 hours (two to three times daily). This suggested dose is for formulations containing diphenhydramine as the only the active ingredient. In certain situations (e.g. following a snake bite) 2 mg/lb per dose may be given instead. When used for allergies, it is best if the medicine is given before exposure to the allergen.

Don’t give any amount to your dog without checking with your vet first, as the dosage can differ depending on several factors including your dog’s medical history. It’s also important to determine the cause of symptoms before administering the medicine. When treating a small dog it’s better to use the children’s formula which contains smaller amounts of active ingredient, making it easier to measure out an accurate dose.

Giving the medicine on an empty stomach is fine, but giving it with food can help to prevent drooling and vomiting.

The chart and calculator below will help you find the usual dosage for your dog.
