My dog just ate a 15 mg melodic am pill that I dropped on

Customer Question

My dog just ate a 15 mg melodic am pill that I dropped on the floor. He's a 7 mo old mixed breed, weighs about 38 lbs. Do I need to take him to an emergency center?

Hi, this is Dr. Hill. I would call the animal poison control center if possible. (###) ###-#### They will able to tell you pretty quickly if this is toxic. You should induce vomiting with 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide by mouth now and I will do a search and be right back.

Can you confirm the spelling of the medication please?
