I have a 8 lb Chihuahua and a 24 lb Shiba Inu

I use Advantix II for them and haven't had any problems.

However, I'm a little concerned about the dosage for my Shiba Inu...

Advantix for Small Dogs - 4 to 10 lbs - 0.4 ML

Advantix for Medium Dogs - 11 to 20 lbs - 1.0 ML

Advantix for Large Dogs - 21 to 55 lbs - 2.5 ML

Since my Shiba Inu is at the very bottom of the Large Dog dosage, I feel like it's too much for her body. Does anyone think 1 ML is enough? This has nothing to do with cost, I spend $200 per month in just their food, I just want whats best for their long-term health.

Personally, I wouldn't worry about it but since you're concerned, you could always try the smaller dose and see if it works.

Yes, you might want to go with the lower dose and see if that works. I use this all the time and have learned you don't need to be exact with the pour on type meds. Now the pills like the Nexguard, triflectis etc. I would be a lot more careful.
