Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!So if your dog is 34 pounds (15.5 kg) and ingested 1200 mg that ingestion concentration would be 77 mg/kgLuckily guafenison has a pretty wide margin of safety. The side effects we may see are low body temperature, mild tremors, vomiting and incoordination. The treatment is supportive (meaning if you brought him in, they would simply monitor and treat any symptoms that arise for a day or so). The dose where these signs were seen is up to 49 of the 400mg tablets--so if only a few of the tablets were eaten, then it is likely you will see few, if any signs, and they should be mild

As for the zicum it could cause some stomach upset, but is not toxic. Zinc can be a potentially bad thing for dogs, but this is a zinc salt and it is poorly absorbed. I wouldn't too much, but monitor him for any vomiting or diarrhea. If you see these thing you may need to take him to a veterinrian to get something to settle his stomach.I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today!If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!
