Does anyone know how much D-mannose to give a 54-lb. dog?

I asked her vet and got that "deer in the headlights" look and told to follow the bottle directions. But the bottle is for humans.

I've looked at every website I can find and seen anywhere from 300 mg. - 1,000 mg. daily.

We are going to start with 1/8 teaspoon (275 mg.) to see how Chance does.
