I would like to help you with your question, but first I need a bit more information.

How many mg of Prilosec did he eat?

How much does he weigh?

Is he taking any other medications?

Does he have any medical problems?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

20MG

10LBS

No other medication except Revolution once a month

No other medical conditions

Expert:  Dr.Beth replied 7 years ago.
This is higher than the usual dose given to dogs, but still within the recommended range, so you should see no toxic effects. Possible side effects that you can see from this medication include nausea, vomiting, gas, and diarrhea. If you were to see these side effects, I would expect them to show up in the next 1-2 days. Giving a cup of milk to drink may help reduce some of the absorption.

Please let me know if I can be of further help.
