Enter dog's weight for the recommended starting dose of Percorten-v. Novartis Guidelines: "Dosage requirements are variable and must be individualized on the basis of the response of the patient to therapy. Begin treatment with Percorten-V at a dose of 1mg per pound of body weight every 25 days. In some patients the dose may be reduced. Serum sodium and potassium levels should be monitored to assure the animal is properly compensated. Most patients are well controlled with a dosage range of .75mg to 1mg per pound of body weight, given every 21 to 30 days.”
