Customer Question
Hi. About 30 min ago...
Hi. About 30 min ago I gave our bulldog two allergy pills and my husband didn't know and he gave him two also. It says on the bottle to give 1pill for every 30 pounds. We believe he weighs around 75 to 80 pounds. Do I need to be super worried? I'm scared to let him go to sleep for the night and I'm scared to go to sleep and not be watching him?

Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Can you please tell me the name of the allergy medication and what mg each tablet is? Thank you

Depending on what the allergy medications they are all very safe and if it is an antihistamine has a very wide margin of safety. It may cause mild to moderate sedation but otherwise you should not have any issues.

If you want to be absolutely sure (since I don't know if this is an antihistamine at this point) and your dog ingested this within the last hour then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds (i.e. 1 tbsp) then walk around to mix it in the stomach and agitate the lining. If no vomiting within 10-15 minutes it can be repeated once only in hopes of inducing vomiting.

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today. I am on-line another 30 minutes tonight
