Sedation may occur, usually for up to 24 hours but sometimes persisting as long as 72 hours. Sedation, lethargy, CNS depression, bradycardia and slow, shallow breathing may occur in small number of dogs; these signs usually last less than 24 hours. Signs are mainly due to alpha-2 adrenergic activity. If signs persist, wash the dogs in warm soapy water (not dish-washing detergent), dry it and warm it. Ataxia, bradycardia, vomiting, diarrhoea, hypothermia and transient hyperglycaemia may occur. Debilitated and geriatric animals, and dogs of very small breeds, are more likely to show adverse effects. /// Storage:
