Luckily this medication is used in dogs starting at 2 mg/kg and up to 4 mg/kg. At 29 pounds (13.2 kg) this would be 26 mg to 53 mg which is within the range that Roscoe ingested

According to the veterinary formulary:

Most common adverse effects reported include sedation and ataxia. Because use to date is limited in animals, adverse effect profile may evolve with additional clinical experience.

In addition, as with any ingestion please monitor for vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, reduced appetite but I suspect you won't see any ill effects from this ingestion with the exception of potentially mild sedation

If gi side effects are seen then please take a few precautions:

- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg per pound every 12 hours for 3 days

- Leash walks to help the medicine pass more readily of >15 minutes if he is stable enough to walk

- Tonight bland diet of white rice and lean boiled meat such as chicken in small more frequent meals but waiting at least 12 hours after vomiting has subsided if there is this symptom

If the lethargy is progressive or vomiting/ diarrhea with blood please consider a veterinary exam but again I suspect you will see no ill effects. Please let me know if you have any additional questions I can assist with or clarify.
