How long ago did Bella eat this medication?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. G., Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Given the size of Bella and the current dose, it is unlikely there will be any life threatening effects. The medication can however cause some lethargy, vomiting, tremors, and other signs. Typically these are at higher doses. If the pill was ingested very recently, inducing vomiting may be the best route to avoid any effects of the medication. Vomiting can be induced with two teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide orally. If that does not work after 10 minutes, it can be repeated again. If Bella develops any abnormal signs, a trip to the emergency vet is recommended.
