Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Now in regards ***** ***** pup's situation, this is a drug that we do use in dogs and therefore not an outright poisoning. Furthermore, if she only had half, this isn't an overdose either. Therefore, we could see some sedation or paradoxical agitation; but we'd not expect any harm here. Therefore, we'd just want to keep her calm, quiet, and in a dimly lit room for the next 12-24 hours while this runs its course.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
