My 12 lb miniature schnauzer ate my 22 lb miniature

Customer Question
My 12 lb miniature...

My 12 lb miniature schnauzer ate my 22 lb miniature schnauzer's trifexis. Will it make her sick?

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

Ellie Belle and she is 10 years old.

No, it won't. The milbemycin in Trifexis is well tolerated at over 20X recommended dosing. The spinosad is well-tolerated at over 16X recommended dosing but even recommended doses of spinosad can cause vomiting. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Ellie Belle will remain safe. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
