The recommended lignan dosage for dogs (either for cortisol reduction or for general health) is 1-2 mg per pound of body weight.

For 10 lb dogs, give 10-20 mg of Flaxseed SDG lignan or HMR lignan daily.
For 20 lb dogs, give 20-40 mg of Flaxseed SDG lignan or HMR lignan daily.
For 40 lb dogs, give 40-80 mg of Flaxseed SDG lignan or HMR lignan daily.

The capsules can be opened and sprinkled onto dog food. The capsules can also be placed in a pill pocket, a piece of meat or cheese, etc.
Note: If your dog is taking flaxseed lignans, a probiotic like yogurt can help with absorption. Open the capsule and sprinkle the powder into a small amount of yogurt with live and active cultures.
