Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I'm so sorry to hear that your dog may have consumed some of these pills. Do you know when it happened?
Good. You're still within the correct amount of time to get him to vomit.Because we don't know exactly how many he has eaten, if he ate any at all, it's best to induce vomiting. You will want to use a brand new bottle of peroxide for the most effective results. Follow the instructions here: http://www.sunrisepetclinicaz.com/vomiting.htmlBe on the lookout for any awkward behavior, you'll want to watch him for acting drunk, walking funny, sleeping very hard and being unable to wake up when disturbed, etc. If this happens, present him to your local most clinic for evaluation promptly.If my answer has helped you, please take the time today to leave positive feedback for me.

You should see symptoms start 2-6 hours following ingestion. I just got your post about him already having vomited. If you haven't seen any pills come up, chances are he didn't eat them. Always good to keep an eye out, though.Is there any other assistance I can give you today?
If he's vomited them up, they should not be lethal. Making him vomit was an excellent choice.If he were to have consumed a lot of them and not been made to vomit, this could very well have been lethal.If no pills were produced in the vomit, it seems unlikely that you'd need to go to the ER. If you wish to be certain, a trip there wouldn't hurt. They can also induce vomiting to be sure that the stomach is empty. Activated charcoal would not be a bad approach for such a case. If he were my dog, knowing how quickly he'd been made to vomit, I'd elect to wait and watch.

Activated charcoal helps to keep the body from absorbing toxins. There's an additive that's often used to help speed up the peristaltic motion in the GI tract so that dogs eliminate it faster (they go to the bathroom a LOT and quickly). This is not available over the counter, but you can find activated charcoal at just about any store.Directions here for dosing: http://bestpethomeremedies.com/dog-poisoning/
