Thanks for the question. I'm Dr Chaithanya, trying to help you today.

Clonazepam dose for dogs is 0.5mg/kg, can be repeated for every 8 hours. It is an active ingredient used for the treatment of seizures in dogs, so don't worry.

In large doses, sedation will be produced, and high doses may cause depression of the respiratory rate and heart rate. If a dog has eaten a large quantity accidently then vomiting should be induced.

There is an excellent article at the following link

Hope the information helped.
