Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and dosing for pets.

There are no big studies but what we've seen in practice, and most of the time, you use about 0.3 milligrams per kilogram. But you kind of max it, as like human dose. Pets have higher metabolizers and they metabolize LDN quicker. Sometimes they require twice daily dosing, and with a maximum around the same dose. Sometimes bigger dogs might need higher than human doses because they metabolize faster, and it works really well for them.
