Hi there,
My puppy is 8lbs and 10 weeks old. When the cleaner was cleaning the house, he chewed off Doxylamine Succinate wrapper, n managed to eat 1/3 of 25mg dose, before he could have more the cleaner took it out of his mouth.
Is he going to be ok?

Anna, upon calculating the toxic dose potential this should not be toxic for your puppy. He may experience some sedation otherwise he should be ok. I would observe him for the next 12 hours, if he becomes sedated to the point that he is not able to walk I would have him checked by ER veterinarian for supportive care. If no symptoms after 12 hours expect no symptoms.
