Hi all,

I was at my Vet today for my sharpei, who has cancer. She gave me mirtazapine for his appetite, but the instructions on the bag is strange, it just says "give as needed". To me it seems like a mistake, shouldn't it be given once a day and it will take a few days before the effect is seen?

You can give it once a day but the vet is saying that if your dog eats on its own then don't give it. If it doesn't work a few hours after you give it odds are it won't work.



A side note for anyone else reading: dosage in cats is 1/4 of a 15 mg tab every 3rd day.
