Good morning. I am Draft. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and would like to help. This medication is used for high blood pressure and it is important to remove this from your sweet guy as soon as possible. You have a 2 hr window to induce vomiting to remove this. Give your guy 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide or concentrated salt mixture per 5 pounds of his weight if it has been about 2 hrs or less. You can safely do this 3 times until he vomits which will remove this medication. If it has been over 2 hrs, have your vet check your sweet guy for a lowered blood pressure which could cause him is better to be safe when this is concerned.
Does that make sense? Please let me know if you have other questions. I am always happy to help!
Sincerely, ***** *****
