For ventricular originated arrhythmias: canines 2 to 4 mg/kg of body weight, I/V. as initial dose, then by constant infusion of 20 to 80 µg/kg per minute. ECG will determinate if it is enough or if it is needed another kind of anti-arrhythmic.
In felines 0.5 mg/kg body weight, I/V., (the dose is equivalent to the quarter part of the canines, as felines are much more sensitive to the effects of the drug).
