Customer: Dani
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Dani?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but I wanted to let you know that this isn't likely to cause serious harm. The Clonazepram is a very low dose so we aren't likely to see any signs. We could see interaction with her medication (breathing changes, confusion, depression), but again the dose is low enough that that isn't likely and we'd expect it to settle within 24 hours. So, we'd just want to monitor Dani here.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
