Hi there, this is Dr Linda, a UK based vet.

This is a medicine we use in dogs for various conditions including aggression and other behavioural issues.

We use it at a dose of 1 to 2 mg/kg, so Oscar has not had an overdose and we wouldn't expect any toxicity or problems.

Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 9 days ago.

You may notice slight lethargy and a reduced appetite but side effects should be mild and short-lived.

Do keep a close eye on Oscar but he should be just fine.
