Customer Question

150# ***** took 7.25/325hydrocodone/APAP, is that toxic for him.

Not even close. 325 mg of acetaminophen is less than a third of the dose recommended for a 150lb dog. I might dose a 150 lb dog with up to 75 mg of hydrocodone. he might become transiently sedate but that's about it. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Thank you. What a relief, he's a big dog that eats anything. I was just worried about his breathing and any potential side effects.

You're quite welcome. I understand your concern. He's going to be fine.
