Friend, 10mg of Lisinopril will not be toxic to a 32 lbs. The lowest dose to cause hypotension in dogs is 27mg/kg. In this case, based on weight your dog took a dose of 0.6mg/kg; Gabbana will be fine, no need to worry.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
