Hello,This is Dr. KV. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am reviewing your information right now and will post back with a reply to you in just one moment...
Can you please tell me how much your dog weighs? And breed?
Great, thank you for the additional information. Please give me a moment while I check dosing info...
I am not finding any dosing information for Temazepam---it is only used in humans, not dogs. However, it is in the same class of drug as Valium, which is very commonly used in dogs. I would expect Riot to get very sleepy if he ate the entire pill. It would be best to try to get him to vomit by giving him 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide to lessen the sedative effects.
Since the medication is a sedative, I would be worried about excess sedation and low blood pressure given his size. To be safe, you may want to try to wake him every few hours tonight to ensure the sedation effect is not too profound.
You're welcome and best of luck!
