Hello again

I have been working out a written answer for you while I was waiting ...

1. Where a dog has swallowed any sort of drug not intended for it then one of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and try recover the drug that way. If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion { Two hours at the absolute outside } then things should be OK . For the sake of speed I will give you a link on how to do this best : LINK

2. Having said that if you fail to induce vomiting then at this sort of dosage all you are likely to see is mild sedation and then the dog will recover some hours later. Of course it is just common sense that you should monitor your dog and contact an ER vet if any odd symptoms occur but this would be unlikely in my experience.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,

Dr Scott
