Q. My 7 pound dog just ate one of my 5 mg clonazepam . What will happen to him ? Please help

Answered By

A. Clonazepam is sometimes prescribed to pets at the dosage of 0.1 mg/ pound, so it is safe to be used but in your case there has been an overdose. There are not much data available with regards to dogs overdose.If your dog has ingested the tablet in the last 2 hrs , I think you should take him to a local vet clinic to have vomiting induced.
