lorazepam

Thank you for the information, 1/2 to 1mg is the typical starting dose for most dogs but a 25lb dog can range up to 6mg in cases of severe anxiety or significant seizure disorders. If your pooch ate 1 mg he'll likely be very sleepy for the next 8-12 hours but otherwise he'll be unharmed. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions. Dr. Dan
