According to the vet PDR it is 1-2 mg per pound body weight (2 being for more serious allergies or more serious things like bee sting). Giving less honestly doesn't do ANYTHING at all.

Yes, it makes them sleepy (which is why some vets are reluctant to give it at the real dose) but their metabolisms are faster than ours so they require more.

It's a 6 hour drug -- so you can give it two to four times a day.

Fair warning -- you need to give it for at least 3-r weeks -- don't just give it a couple of days. Their jacobsen's organ is SO complicated that what they breathe in today may not fully affect the body for several days. So you gotta give the body something to work with.

Homeopathics can be a darned good help as well -- they don't last a long time in the body (you don't give those in food -- you crush them and just sprinkle in their mouth). But Newton is a good company and it's a liquid (doesn't taste bad - tastes like water, in fact) that you just squirt in their mouth. But you gotta give it at least 3 times a day.
