Hi this is Dr. Evans.
What is the name of the cough drop and how long ago did you dog eat it?
I see... poor pup! How much does your dog weigh and what breed?
How many cough drops did your dog lick?
Each Hall's cough drop contains about 7 mg of menthol... the toxic dose to your dog would be about 20 mg.
Your dog should be just fine... if you notice any mild vomiting or diarrhea feed a bland diet of white rice and boiled chicken or hamburger (no salt or seasoning) for 3 days. Otherwise, if none of this is present, continue as usual!
Yes, that would be assuming he licked the entire cough drop
You're very welcome :)
Can I help you with anything else tonight?
