There's not much data published on overdoses of Zantac. Fortunately, what is published is the toxic dose and O'malley has consumed only half as much as would be needed for major symptoms to arise. It is always wise to have a vet check done after an overdose of medication occurs, but it does not appear that he is in any immediate danger. You may see vomiting or diarrhea, GI cramping, nausea, etc. If you see muscle tremors, collapse or other concerning symptoms I would recommend an immediate physical exam at the ER or your vets office, whichever is open at the time.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
