Ok thanks. I'm looking up some doses now for you.

Expert:  Dr. Gary replied 2 months ago.

These are all relatively safe. The most you're likely to see is vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea and some mild weakness.

If you see any muscle tremors, seizures or labored breathing- then I would go to a vet and start some IV fluids to flush it out of her system and symptomatic care as needed.

I think the chances of seeing serious signs are unlikely, but keep a close eye on her for 6-12 hours to be sure.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
