Customer Question
My dog is about...

My dog is about 15 lbs he ate most of another dogs food that had a dose of 1/4 of 5mg of pimobendan. Should I be worried enough to take him to a vet?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

I don't think so.
