|Kiwi, what's in the sleeping pills? There are many kinds out there. Is it over the counter? Usually those contain dimenhydrinate or Dramamine. There are obviously potential side effects with any drugs, but 25 mg is within the recommended dose in dogs to control motion sickness, if you were to use it.
Other sleep aids available over the counter would include diphenhydramine or Benadryl. Again, 25 mg is within normal dose for a dog your size, so other than drowsiness I wouldn't worry too much about it.
If it is "holisitic," it usually contains an herb called valerian root. this is relatively safe.
But if these are prescription sleeping pills, such as those containing benzodiazepines (like valium or atavan) or zopeclone, I'd worry more, as they can carry more severe potential reactions.
