Hello again I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. Actually it is very much in your favour than you have a larger dog { 90 pounds } so even if you do nothing the chances are that your dog will not suffer any very serious or fatal side effects though you may see such things as marked lethargy and uncoordination. 2. That said where a dog has swallowed any sort of drug he should not have then one of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and try recover the drugs that way, If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion { Two hours at the absolute outside } then things may be OK . For the sake of speed I will give you a link on how to do this best : LINK { Also be aware that an ER vet will be able to quickly induce vomiting with prescription drugs } 3. However if you fail to induce vomiting and if any odd symptoms do occur and you become further concerned then you should have your dog checked over by an ER vet without delay. But I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so you can get straight back to me if your dog's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me furtherRegards, ***** ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
