My 10lb dog ate a mucinex dm
Hello, and thanks for writing in.

How many milligrams (mg) was the pill?

How long ago did Bella eat the pill?

Thanks,

Im not even sure if she did eat it. It was on bathroom counter and then it wasn't. I'm thinking cat knocked it on floor and Bella ate it. It was about noon. I think the pill is 1200 mg
Thanks for the information.
IF she did eat the pill, it's too late to make her vomit. So, you should keep a close eye on her for the following possible symptoms over the next 12 hours: agitation, muscle tightness, distress, and pacing. If you see these symptoms, she should be treated at a veterinary clinic. If she is not showing any abnormal symptoms after this period of time, she should be fine.

I hope this helps.
