Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Cyclobenzaprine is a human skeletal muscle relaxant but it is not used very much { if at all } in the dog.

2. Because the effects of this drug will be unpredictable one of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and recover the drug that way, If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion { Two hours at the absolute outside } then things should be fine. 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 }

3. Of course if you do not manage to induce vomiting and any odd symptoms do develop you should have your dog checked over by an ER vet without delay. Possible symptoms could include agitation, vomiting, diarrhoea, salivation, and tremors.

4. Also I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your dog's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.
