Friend, a single dose of Alprazolam 0.5mg is not going to be toxic to a 28 lbs puppy; this dose is within therapeutic limits. Socks may become a little sedated otherwise very likely he will be fine.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
