Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Now with Benelli being the larger dog, this works in our favour since these are all underdosings for his weight. Therefore, we'd expect no harm here. He may show short term increased thirst/urination, gut upset, or lethargy; but this should settle within 24 hours. So, we'd just want to keep an eye, allow him access to water and frequent trips to urinate. Any gut upsetand we can consider offering a light diet option like cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg, or meat baby food (as long as its free from garlic or onion powder) until he settles.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
