Hello again

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

1. Your small dog is at quite a risk from this. But one of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and try recover the drug that way. If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion 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 }

2. Have a go with inducing vomiting and then let me know how it went ...

Regards,

Dr Scott
