I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. I couldn't locate any toxicology studies in dogs for Brilinta but the acute single-dose studies in mice and rats showed that ticagrelor (Brilinta) was well-tolerated. No deaths were observed following administration of up to 2,000 mg/kg (550 times the times the recommended human daily dose on a mg/kg basis). The primary observation noted at higher doses in rats was a transient body weight loss. I would expect roscoe to remain unaffected. Please give me an update on roscoe.

Due to a lack of reply until now we called the pet poison control hotline. They recommend giving him hydrogen peroxide to vomit and watching him for a couple days for any signs of bleeding
