How long ago did this actually happen?

How much does your dog weigh?

Can you tell me the exact product name and ingredients?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It happened 30 minutes ago and she weights 45 kg and the brand name is ***** ***** contains saccharin sodium and gluten (wheat starch) .
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

I see.

The saccharin and gluten are not going to be an issue.

There should be another ingredient, the active ingredient, either hyoscine hydrobromide, scopolamine hydrobromide or another ingredient. That's what i need to know. They are typically 300 microgram tablets, but there are a few varieties.

Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

with 5 tablets and her weight, it is probably going to be an overdose. They are most often 0.3 or 0.4mg tablets and 3 would be max acceptable dose. I would recommend inducing vomiting at this point.

Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

You can use over the counter 3% hydrogen peroxide to do this. You should give 50 mls or 10 teaspoons to induce vomiting. If there is no vomiting after 10 minutes give another dose. You can use a turkey baster or syringe, or offer it in a bowl with a small amount of juice. Many dogs will lick it up without much coaxing.

Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

If there is no vomiting after 20 minutes, I would head to the vet to have them induce vomiting.
