Most likely nothing, John. This drug's efficacy in dogs isn't good. It's no longer recommended to be given orally as an expectorant and is restricted to inducing muscle relaxation and restraint as an adjunct to anesthesia for short procedures in dogs when given intravenously. You might see mild sedative effects but Louie should remain safe. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
