Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for your dog. I do have a few additional questions to ask first about him if you don't mind:

1. When do you think he might have eaten the cough drops?

2. Can you double check the label to see if there's any xylitol in them (if sugar free)?

3. How much does he weigh?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
