Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. No worries. That is a normal dose for a dog his size. It can be used to treat diarrhea in dogs. I know he does not have diarrhea. If he does not have a bowel movement tomorrow you can give him a teaspoon of benefiber, metamucil, or miralax every 12 hours until he has a bowel movement.

There is also a good chance he will not get constipated and be just fine.

Walking helps stimulate gastrointestinal motility. Taking him for extra walks can help as well.

How does that sound? Do you have any additional questions?
