Question Advocate for Dogs

This is a hypothetical question based on a conversation (read argument), with a colleague.

She insisted that there would be nothing wrong with giving Advocate for a +25kg (55lbs) dog such as my GSD x Husky, to my 14 week old GSD who weighs 15kg (33lbs). She argued that she did it with her Dane and her rescue pup and I don't need to buy two separate sizes. I bought two separate sizes if anyone is concerned!

I argued that it could poison the puppy, but I wasn't sure exactly what would happen with an overdose. What could happen?

btw I am referring to Advocate that does fleas, lice etc + heartworm

Least helpful reply ever. Clearly I have a program in place for my dogs and was simply asking a question about the effects of an overdose. Did you just reply for the sake of preaching?

Just wow

Is it last helpful for you or your dog? If you put arrogance aside: it was the right answer for your dog. You should keep in mind, it is not question of weight because by weight alone it the same dosage for from 20 lb to 55 lb dog; rather, it is question of age and general health conditions.
