Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question.
How long ago did he eat it?
Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
The first thing we need to do is to get your pup to vomit up the pill he ate. The way to make that happen is pretty easy and instructions can be found here:http://www.petplace.com/dogs/how-to-induce-vomiting-emesis-in-dogs/page1.aspx
If you're unable to get him to vomit, you should monitor him for signs of a toxic ingestion. You're going to want to watch for things like increased heart rate, panting, whining, pacing, problems with coordination and any other unusual behavior for him.
If you see any of those, you should have him seen by an emergency vet as soon as possible. If you're not sure where one is in your area, you can go to: http://www.vetlocator.com and plug in your zip code. They'll point you in the direction of the one nearest to you.
All that being said, it is suggested that a Lyrica ingestion...even at high doses, seems to be less dangerous in dogs as it is in humans, and I was actually unable to find any reported deaths from this kind of accidental overdose.
I hope this helps.
