Customer Question

My 25 lb American Eskimo just ate one 50 mg primidone that I dropped. Do I need to induce vomiting or is she below the threshold requiring that?

Hello, and thanks for writing in.

This amount in your dog should not be a concern. There is a small chance that you might notice either lethargy or the opposite (restlessness) tonight, but that would be it, if anything. I would not worry about it, since that is a small dose for a 25 lbs dog.

I hope this helps.
