In toxicology studies doses of this drug of 1.1 mg/lb (31 mg for Missy) caused no functional or morphological abnormalities. The expected diuretic effect may arise but Missy wasn't intoxicated and will remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
