A. In the first week, it would be 250mg per day, so that's a total of 7 x 250 = 1,750 mg for the week.

B. In the 2nd week it would be 4 x 7 tablets = 28, That's 28 tablets during the week.

C. 1,750mg for the first week, and 1,400 mg for the 2nd week, so that's a total of 3,150 mg

D. It will be 35 tablets during the first week. (5 tabs per day time 7 days per week).

E. It will be a total of 63 tablets.

1,750mg week 1 (50mgX 5 pills per day X 7 days in one week)

1,400mg week 2 (50mg X 4 pills per day X 7 days in one week)

Total pills needed: 35 (week one)

28 (week two)

63 pills total. Total dosage for both weeks is 3,150 mg.

Just because there is a dog in this does not make it a "Veterinary question"... If it makes you feel any better, replace "St. Bernard" with "12 year old child". This change does not make it an MD question...

Week 1: 7 days; 5 tablets per day; 50mg per tablet

Week 2: 7 days; 4 tablets per day; 50mg per tablet

a) 7 x 5 x 50 = total mg for week 1.

b) 7 x 4 = total tablets for week 2.

c) Result of e, below x 50

d) 7 x 5 = total tablets for week 1

e) (7 x 5) + (7 X 4) = total number of tablets for both weeks

this is very simple, count the number of pills for each day-use a calendar if that helps,follow the taper dose schedule, and multiple by the miligrams of each tablet which is fixed
