Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.

Expert:  Dr. Gary replied 4 months ago.

This medication is pretty well tolerated in dogs.

If you do see signs of toxicity, it's usually excitation, muscle tremors and potentially seizures. If you're seeing that excitation and twitchiness, then I would get to a vet where they can give Cyproheptadine to reverse the signs. I think it's unlikely that you see any toxic signs.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
