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

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. That would be an egregious and life-threatening overdose of both of the drugs in that medication. Please let me know that Gizmo has been attended to by a vet who decontaminated Gizmo by emesis and tubing of activated charcoal into his GI tract and Gizmo is being monitored in a critical care setting.
