Friend, if he was given 97.2 mg 3/4 of a tablet twice based on his weight this comes out to a dose of 5.4mg/kg; this dose will Not be toxic or fatal; it is still within therapeutic range. He may experience some sedation otherwise he will be fine. Just to be on the side of caution, observe him for the next 12 hours, if he becomes lethargic to the point where he is having difficulty walking or changes in respiration I would have him checked by ER veterinarian; not likely for this to happen but just so you know what to look for. My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
