Hello, I am Dr. Peter a licensed Veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today.

Friend, based on his weight the dose ingested is 0.9mg/kg of metoprolol, this will not be toxic for your dog, the dose is within therapeutic limits. Your dog will be fine.

If you have additional questions I will be glad to answer them.
