Customer Question

We dropped a klonazapam pill .5 mg on the floor and couldn't find it. I heard my 2 yr old Sheltie crunch on something and think he might have found it and ate it. Can it hurt him. He weighs about 11 lbs. Thank you!

I might dose an 11 lb dog with up to 0.5 mg/lb of clonazepam. 0.5 mg is a very small dose for a dog and so Zeus will remain safe. You might see a minorly sedated Zeus but not toxicity.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Hi,
I'm just following up on our conversation about Zeus. How is everything going?
