Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. Zyrexin is a herbal product which is on open sale and normally such products have a very high margin of safety in humans otherwise they would be on prescription. It is really a dietary supplement rather than a drug.

2. Little is known about the effects of Zyrexin in dogs but you would normally expect such supplements to have a high margin of safety in dogs as well so the chances are this incident will not affect him too much. Still it is best not to take chances so one of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and try recover the Zyrexin that way, If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion { Two hours at the absolute outside } then things should 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 }

However if you fail to induce vomiting or if any odd symptoms occur then you should have your dog checked over by a vet without delay.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,

Dr Scott

Just picked up your second message, if you are starting to see adverse symptoms such as the breathing problem you mention then it would be best to take your dog to a vet without delay even if this means using an ER vet.

Better safe than sorry ...
