I might dose a 35 lb dog with up to 10 mg/lb of gabapentin or 350 mg for Casey Jones. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. You're likely to see sedation and ataxia ("drunken sailor") but he wasn't intoxicated or harmed.Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
