Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Please don't worry about this too much, even if Angel did swallow this tablet then things should not be too bad.

2. You see this drug is sometimes prescribed for dogs and where it is the top dose rate is listed as 0.25 mg per pound of the dog's bodyweight given orally every 8 hours. So for your 30-pound dog, this works out as 7.5 mg. So really 1 mg is not of much concern, you may perhaps see some mild lethargy, but that's about it.

3. Please follow this link for an accurate article on how this drug is used in dogs, including dose rates: LINK

4. Given the above, all you need do is to keep an eye on your dog for now. But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if Angel's condition changes in any way or indeed if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
