I have a script that has the dosage of “take one capsule every 3.5 days.” So I would give one on say, Saturday, then one on Tuesday, then another on Friday for the 3, but what does the .5 day mean?

Dr. Krista, the medication is Calcitriol and the vet already confirmed the schedule calculations.

Hi Hilary,

we already did figure it out but I’ll put it here anyway, in case somebody else has the same trouble: every 3.5 days = every 84 hours, or every 3 days and 12 hours. So if starting Saturday PM, the next will be due Wednesday AM, the next Saturday PM again.
