Thank you for your reply.

Benny has definitely had way too much lyrica for a dog his size, fortunately there seems to be a high tolerance for this medication in dogs. Poison control reports that dogs with an overdose of this medication are most commonly observed to be walking in a drunken fashion or lethargic. The symptoms, if any are observed, tend to be seen in the first 36 hours following ingestion. Due to the fact that it's been so long since he consumed this medication, watching to see if there are any symptoms that develop would be wise. Otherwise, if none develop, there's should be little reason to be concerned after the first 36 hours have passed.
