English stafordshires

OK good. There should be no major danger her in that case, this medication can be more dangerous to certain breeds such as collies for example.

They are likely to develop constipation, but this should subside over the next 24-48hrs. I would advise to feed a moist diet or soak biscuits to encourage water intake.

If severe constipation occurs which does not resolve after 2-3 days then your vet may need to treat with laxitives or perform any enema.

I hope that answers your question?

I'm glad that they seem fine. No I don't think there is a serious risk to them here.
