From our Pet Nutritionist:
For a therapeutic dose (for a pet suffering from joint/mobility issues and pain), multiply your pet's weight by 18.75 to get the recommended amount of mg needed daily for therapeutic support for your pet.
40lb dog with moderate arthritis
40 x 18.75 = 750mg daily
As there are 500mg per tablet, you would want to issue 1 1/2 tablets daily.
Optimal issue for this example pet: 1 tablet in AM, 1/2 tablet in PM
