Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog drank your Dr. Pepper.
There is 41mg of caffeine in an entire can, so he likely ingested about 30mg of caffeine. He weighs about 22 pounds or 10mg, so this is 3mg/kg. This is well under the toxic dose of caffeine, but you may still see hyperactivity, agitation, panting, and pacing.
There is also a significant amount of sugar in this drink, so I would recommend feeding a high protein snack such as cooked chicken or eggs to counteract the sugar and slow the digestion.
I hope this answer helps you. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
