Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Now in this case, I do agree with the pharmacist as this drug is quite a mild one. Furthermore, which they may not be aware of but it is a drug we use at dogs and do so at a higher dose. So, if Benny only had half of this tablet it is a low dose and if anything, we may just seem some short term GI upset, increased thirst and urination. So, we'd not be overly worried here and just want to make sure he has access to water, access to the yard to pass urine as needed, and can feed a light diet (ie rice with boiled chicken or cottage cheese) to offset any stomach upset but otherwise we'd expect no long term harm.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
