Friend, you need to move quickly and try to induce vomiting with peroxide within the hour. The main concern is the Cymbalta which can cause Serotonin syndrome (agitation, vocalization, seizures, tremors, etc.). To induce vomiting with peroxide this is what you can do:

1- Give him 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting.

2- Allow him to walk for a minute and move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.

3- If he does not vomit or you do not see the pills in the vomit I would have him checked by ER veterinarian for supportive care.
