Maltese ate my imovane
JA: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the Maltese will be able to digest that. What is the Maltese's name and age?
Customer: Mimi She is 6 months. Please please
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mimi?
Customer: No

Dr. Michael Salkin is typing. Please be patient.

Thankfully, Mimi will remain safe. This hypnotic is well-tolerated by dogs. A one-month oral study in dogs involved giving zopiclone six days per week at doses of 0, 6, 24 and 120 mg/kg. Dose-related sedation and hypotonia (loss of muscle tone) of the hind legs were observed. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Oh my this is the first time this has happened. She is my baby. I would hate if something happens to her

She may become sedated and "weak in the legs" but she'll remain safe. How much does she weigh and how many mg of Imovane did she ingest, please?
