Hello & welcome, Ken. I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that none of my colleagues were available when you posted your question but just wanted to let you know that that is not a worrying dose here. We usually don't see side effects at such a low dose for a dog this size. Therefore, while this drug can cause lethargy, weakness, low blood pressure, and wobbliness; at this dose we'd not be worried about that. Therefore, we'd only need to monitor for the next 12-24 hours but again this is a very low dose for a dog this size and we aren't likely to see any issue.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
