My name s Dr. Mouradian and I am very concerned that your pet may be poisoned. I recommend calling the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center right away. They are your best resource for any animal poison-related emergency, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you think that your pet may have ingested a potentially poisonous substance, call (888)(###) ###-####/strong>. A $65 consultation fee may be applied to your credit card. They will ask you the name of the product as well as any listed ingredient and will tell you if the product is toxic and if you should rush your pet to the nearest veterinarian.

You can also give your dog about 2-3 TBSPs of hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting to bring the pill back up.

Good luck to you and your dog!
