Hi there. Thanks for the question. Let me see if I can help. This is a very serious thing..espcially for such a small dog. Many animals who consume these products become very depressed and lethargic. They may even stop breathing if they are sedate enough. Others have an opposite reaction and become agitated and develop very high blood pressure and heart rate. This can also be very dangerous. You really need to get your dog to vet so that he can be monitored and treatment can be instituted if needed. I hope this helps. Best of luck.
