Hello, my name is***** and I will do my best to help you. I'm reviewing your question now and I will post back to you ASAP.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 4 months ago.

This drug is absorbed by inhaling. It is not readily absorbed from the mouth, stomach or gut.

Therefore your little dog should be alright.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 4 months ago.

An inhalation overdose could cause raspy dry breathing for an hour or so.

Since you think that this may have happened as long ago as 2 nights he should not be in any trouble.

Is he doing anything abnormal?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 4 months ago.
