Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today.

You can relax...Darby isn't in any real danger here.

In studies, dogs saw slight symptoms at between 6.8 - 11.4 mg/lb, which means that your dog would have to swallow between 421 - 706 mgs before we had to really worry about any sort of toxicity.

Clearly Darby didn't get anywhere near that amount, so you might notice some slight sedation, but to be honest, I don't expect you to see even that. She got a very, very small amount for her size.

Of course, it's always better to be safe than sorry, so I'd keep an eye on her for today and if she shows any sort of odd behaviors, then you can have your vet take a peek, but I don't expect there to be an issue.

I hope this helps.
