Hello againI have worked out an answer for you below.1. Please don't give this a second thought Metoprolol is sometimes prescribed for dogs at a dose rate of between 6.25 mg to 25 mg per dog given two to three times daily. Since Buddy is a very much larger dog you can see that the amount he took is well within a published dose rate for dogs so the chances he will be just fine and unaffected by this. There are no special measures you need take in this situation, the seizures should not be a factor by the way.2.
