Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

If this ingestion has been within 2 hrs, you should induce vomiting by following these instructions:

Give 1 teaspoons of peroxide per 5 pounds of weight and wait 15 minutes. If no vomiting, then try it again. You can do this 3 times safely.

This will remove any of these medications from sweet Alex's system so he will not be harmed. These are not safe to give to a young small dog and could have potentially bad effects if not removed from his system. Once removed, even if a small amount was digested, he will be fine.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
