I will have answer for you shortly first I need to find out what exactly did he take.
Did you get it from a veterinarian or an MD for a human?
Thank you for the picture. Please give me 5-10 minutes to type your answer.
Friend, we get concerned about liver toxicity with doses of Paracetamol between 75-100mg/kg. In this case, your puppy took a dose of 64mg/kg based on weight. So, he is very close to above toxic dose and he is a puppy which is more fragile than an adult dog. Unfortunately, we are very limited at to what you can do at home, I am sorry. To be on the safe side I would recommend you have him checked by the nearest veterinarian so they can induce vomiting. This needs to be done within 1-2 hours of ingestion.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand. I will opt out so another expert could help you.
