Customer Question

My 11 lb mini Aussie just ate a 40 mg fluoxetine capsule. Is this something I should take him to the ER vet for or should I wait and see?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Dobby and he is 6.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Dobby?
Customer: He is very healthy and active.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer where you can place your fully refundable $5 deposit (plus $14 after the Veterinarian responds). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.

Here are directions to make him vomit with peroxide:
