JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your son's dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Customer: Trooper
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Trooper?
Customer: no

Oral doses of 0.2 mg/kg/day have been administered to dogs for 6 months without significant drug-related toxicity reported. That would be equivalent to 6 mg for Trooper. Your son's pills totaled far less than that. There's a good chance that Trooper's dietary indiscretion will go unnoticed. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
