Is it possible that my dog is taking four times as much Xanax as me?

My jittery Golden Retriever mix has a prescription for generic Xanax for occasional bouts of high anxiety.
As of today, so do I! Anyway, we both have our own prescriptions for Alazopram, but here's the thing: Doggy's pill bottle says "1 mg tablets."
My bottle says "0.25 mg tablets." Can this be right? Does it metabolize differently in dogs? Do one of us have an incorrect label? Or am I really doping him up something fierce when I give him one of these?
