Hello. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help.

For very stressful situations a 14 lb dog can safely take the 0.5mgs so that would be double his normal dose. This dose should not completely sedate him but should be enough to take the edge off and get him through the fireworks.

It could make him a little off balance so just be sure that he is in a safe place where there is no risk of him falling in case he still tries to pace.

I hope this helps give you some direction. Please reply back if you have no additional questions and I will be happy to continue.
