Before giving your dog any kind of medication, you need to talk to your vet first. Your vet will tell you the proper dosage for your dogs weight.

I'm pretty sure the dosage for dogs is 1mg for every pound.

The dosage is actually 25mg per 25lbs so if you have a 4lb dog the dose would be less than half of what the previous advice, so it's really always best to call the vet, they will give you this info for free and may even calculate the exact dose for you.

Its 1 mg/lb every 8 hrs. So if your dog is 20 lbs, 20 mgs.

2-3 mg per kg OR 1 mg per lb.So yes, that is too much for your dog.

Trust you veterinarian...or learn to do math. Or Here's a better idea...ask random questions online with answers from sources that you don't know... Because you love your dog... How's that working for you?
