I left out the Interceptor that my dogs take - my 7 year old female ate from 8-10 quadriguard pills 50-100 last night - I didn't realize she had gotten them until this morning. she shows no adverse effects as yet. What should I do and what should I watch for?

Kate, in experimental studies dogs have tolerated doses of up to 200mg/kg without any ill effects. In this case, based on Lily's weight if she took 10 pills of 23mg of Milbemycin (interceptor) that comes to a toxic dose of 10mg/kg. At this dose it will not be toxic for Lily, no symptoms expected, she will be fine.

Hope the above helps, if you have additional questions I will be glad to answer them.
