Here is a link to the product label.

According to this, the only adverse affect seen in animals administered even 5 times the upper limit of the therapeutic dose was some vomiting.
Chaboni received significantly less than this, therefore, I'd expect little more than some mild vomiting that should go away on its own.

Just checking in to ask how Chaboni is doing. I hope your night was relatively uneventful. I'm curious to know if he even vomited or seems just fine.
Please take a moment to send me an update when you can. I end up being as attached to the pets I meet online as much as the ones I see in the clinic, so I've been thinking about you.
