My 12 lb chihuahua just ate a 1/2 of a Percocet. The milligrams

Customer Question

Hi my 12 lb chihuahua just ate a 1/2 of a Percocet. The milligrams are 10-325 (he consumed about 5/175). We try to induce vomiting with hydrogen peroxide but we were unsuccessful. Do we need to rush him in to the emergency vet?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the chihuahua will be able to digest that. What is the chihuahua's name and age?
Customer: His name is ***** ***** and he is about 3
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about T.?
Customer: No, he is in perfect health
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
