My pup ate a half of a miadol pill will it hurt him

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

His name is ***** ***** he's a year old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Dexter?

No other than that he's fine just scares me

Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. I’m happy to help with your concerns regarding Dexter.

A few questions:

1. How much does he weigh?

2. What dosage and version of Midol did he ingest? (You can list the active ingredients and strength or send a photo of the label)

3. How long ago did he eat it?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
1. 8 ponds
2. Regular midol
3.acetaminophen 500mg
Caffeine 60 mg
Pyrilamine maleate 15 mg
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

How long ago did he eat it?

So to clarify, he ate at half of a tablet. So 250mg Acetaminophen.

I would recommend that you induce him to vomit with hydrogen peroxide. Give a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide by mouth. If he doesn't vomit within 10mins, you can give another tablespoon of peroxide.

Not really even half it was like the end of it
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

Because he is such a small dog, he received a rather high dose of Acetaminophen, which is toxic to dogs and can be damaging to the liver.

How long ago did he eat it? (For reference, your first post is time stamped 30mins ago)

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Yeah that's right
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

So he ate it immediately before you posted your question?

Ok, do you have hydrogen peroxide? He needs a dose now to induce him to vomit the medication before any more of it is absorbed into his system.

I think he just got the top coating off it
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

Is that what he vomited up? It looks like 2 pills (one of them broken)

That's what I took from him before he started got it
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
In his mouth
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
He's acting like normal
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

Gotcha. So, is there ANY chance he could have ingested any other pills?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

If he ingested any of the medication, he will act normal for a day for few but it will be quietly causing damage to his liver. If you are ABSOLUTELY certain that he didn't get any other pills, it looks like you both escaped an evening at the emergency vet.

I just had a little tan setting on coffee table and then seen him wripping it up
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

Well, I'm very glad that you caught him before he actually got to swallow them.

I hope you both have a peaceful evening now.

His nose is hot and dry
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

Ok. It is an old wives tail that dogs need to have cold wet noses. I'm not concerned if its dry.

Does the rest of his body feel warm? like his ears?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No just his nose
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

Ok, then I wouldn't be too concerned.
