My vet prescribed " Chlorpheniramine 4mL tablets, 1/2 tablet every 12 hours". What size liquid should I buy??
If your veterinarian has prescribed a 4 mg tablet of Chlorpheniramine with the directions to give ½ tablet given every 12 hours, then this would be equivalent to 2mg of Chlorpheniramine every 12 hours. Our pharmacy compounds both the 2mg and the 4mg strengths. Please consult with your veterinarian to confirm the prescription for your cat.Verified Answer
