I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Piper, please? Overdoses of this drug up to 10X recommended didn't cause significant morbidity (severity of signs) in human subjects. There's no specific antidote and dogs are treated supportively if need be.
