I regret that I'm not allowed to correspond with customers by phone. Verapamil is dosed to dogs safely at 0.07 mg/lb. What milligram strength was your pill and how much does Sophie weigh?
If she has remained well for 2.5-3 hours, she should remain well because the duration of action in dogs is very short - 30 minutes or less.

Hi Mark,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Sophie. How is everything going?
