My 50 lb 4 month old rotti I believe ate 4 sudafed pe pills within the last 3 hours. He is very energetic and nothibg seems wrong however I am concerned. I called the vet andthey stated to call poison control which costs $50 that I dnt wamt to spend if I don't absolutely have to. Should I induce vomiting
Hello and thank you for asking your question. My name isXXXXX will try to help.
Phenylephrine HCl 10 mg is the concentration and main ingredient right? If it is not then let me know.
So, if that what he ingested, you should not expect toxicity problems. Toxicity would be expected if he ate 10-15 tablets.
I hope this helps.
Poison control now charges $65.
Did that help?

You are correct about the active ingredient and dosage. From what I found of chewed up packaging, he only had 4 pills. If 10 is considered toxic, he should be ok. Thank you very much

You are very welcome. If he ate 10 tablets, or more, signs of toxicity would be vomiting, excitement, seizures, rapid heart rate, abnormal heart beats, and muscle tremors. Just thought I would mention the toxic signs.Smile
