Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. How long ago did he eat the pills? If it was less than an hour, it might be a good idea to get him to vomit, but if it was longer than 30 to 60 minutes, it may be too late and the pills may be out of the stomach.

In general, dogs that get Crestor do not get very sick, but it can affect the liver if they got enough. How much does he weigh? I can tell you how serious this dose is, or how much hydrogen peroxide to give to induce vomiting if this just happened, if I know his weight. Most dogs that get hold of and eat this drug do OK.

He's doing well. Probably split it with his "cousin". Thanks.
