Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, this is Dr. KV. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am reviewing your question right now and will respond to you in just a moment...
Can you please tell me how much your shitzu weighs?
A 250 mg dose for a 10 pound dog equates to aproximately a 50mg/kg dose. This is within the range that would be prescribed, so not a toxic dose. It will likely make her very sleepy. Other side effects can happen as rare allergic reactions, but it would be much less likely.
