ive by oral administration. 0.2 to 5 mg or as directed by a veterinary surgeon. Incontinence. 0.1 to 1 mg daily for three to five days, then 1 mg weekly or as required to maintain continence.The aim of treatment is to provide the lowest possible dose at the longest possible interval. A common course could be 0.1 to 0.3 mg/kg/day orally for seven to 10 days, followed by 1 mg/dog/week. Once a total cumulative dose of 20 mg is reached, therapy should be discontinued for a few months before restarting, to reduce the risk of side effects.In dogs with prostate cancer, doses of up to 1 mg/animal/day have been used for up to 25 weeks in one study, without remission being achieved, but without significant progression of the disease.For treating prostatic hyperplasia in dogs, a typical dose is 0.2 to 1 mg total for five days
