Can I give half of 68mcg / 57mg for my 5lb dog?

The chewable I give my 5lb dog is for up to 25lbs. So I'm guessing it's safe to give my dog half of the chewable. Is this ok?

I forgot to mention this is for Heartgard Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) heart warm prevention medicine for dogs.
You need to give it the way the vet says. A certain amount of that drug needs to be in the dogs system. I have a med that is intended for dogs under 10 pounds.
I would not. The medicine is too hard to divide - the instructions do not give you an option to divide. Go buy the right one.
