I dropped a 50 mg pill of Imitrex for migraines. My 7 year old french bulldog snapped it up before I could get there. Will it hurt her?

Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread.

Friend, imitrex is not a medication used in dogs. This medication can be fatal in dogs. Symptoms associated with toxicity are: Convulsions, tremors, paralysis, salivation, vomiting, lacrimination, cyanosis, etc. If you have peroxide I can instruct you to try to induce vomiting. Or, I would have him checked by nearest ER vet so they can induce vomiting.
