Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Lucy. How long ago did she get this 0.25 mg of Xanax? Are you sure it was just a single one?
Alright. This shouldn't be a bad situation. Alprazolam (Xanax) is used in veterinary medicine for anxiety issues. In the drug formulary, a dose of 0.02 to 0.1 mg / kg is listed. A 5 pound dog is about 2.2 kgs. So the higher end dose of 0.1 mg / kg would be a dose of 0.22 mg. For her to eat just one 0.25 mg tablet, it shouldn't cause any issues but maybe make her a little more tired. There is no need to worry about specific problems from this.
Absolutely no problem. Let her rest and tell her to stay out of trouble!
