Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!Can you please give me the primary ingredient (active) of the pills, how long ago this might have happened, and the mg of the pills?Thank you
Luckily these medications are not toxic to dogs if ingested and have a wide margin of safety. These products are often used to treat some conditions in dogs and the primary active ingredient is Simethicone which only has gastrointestinal disruption as a side effect. To help your dog prevent any irritation or diarrhea, add 1-2 teaspoons of canned pumpkin to each meal for the next few days. Canned pumpkin (not spiced) will help soothe the intestinal tract and is a natural remedy for both diarrhea and constipation.If for any reason you notice any unusual symptoms in your dog, contact his regular veterinarian to rule out more serious conditions.If the active ingredient is simethicone, it is difficult to overdose and is not likely to have any persisting effects.Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you both today. I am online another 30 minutes to assist you
