    Hi everyone!

    Our cat, Bilbo, has been on Dexafort for a few years due to a skin allergy (we think it's a skin allergy as he gets these scaly, red patches on his skin). He weighs about 5kg and his dosage is 0.2ml orally every 3 days.

    We've recently noticed the patches are getting worse again and we think we need to increase his dosage. I was just wondering if this is the right dose as I know dexamethasone is normally a higher dose for anti-inflammatory purposes? We are going to talk to the vet anyway, just wanted to check.
