Hello and welcome, I am Dr. B and would like to help you today.

I do apologize my colleagues could not help you before. Still I wanted to let you know that this was a very low dose for a dog this size. Therefore there is little risk in the case ( large doses can cause heart, breathing, and blood pressure changes) and you need only just monitor for the next 12-24 hours but we would not expect any issue from this small doses for your lad.

Please take care,
Dr. B
