I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dogs getting glipizide. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

How long ago did this happen? How much do the dogs weigh?

If they got this less than an hour ago, it might be best to try to induce vomiting if you have any fresh and fizzy (out of date, or flat won't work) hydrogen peroxide. You give it with some milk or ice cream and it will usually induce vomiting in 5 minutes or so. I need to know what they weigh to give you a safe dose.

Glipizide could send the blood sugar dangerously low, and especially if these are small dogs, they may need to be monitored and given IV glucose until the glipizide wears off.

I hope you were able to see what I wrote! I will be going offline for a little while and back again soon so please let me know if I can answer anything else, and how big your dogs are.
