I accidentally gave my 21 pound Shih Tzu a Vetoryl pill

Customer Question
I accidentally gave my...

I accidentally gave my 21 pound Shih Tzu a Vetoryl pill meant for my 41 pound beagle. I induced vomiting with hydrogen peroxide but do not see the pill although he vomitted quite a bit. Please advise.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Shih Tzu eat anything unusual?

Just the pill

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Shih Tzu's name and age?

Steve and 11 years old he is a survivor of lymphoma now over two years well

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Steve?

He also survived lyme's disease otherwise he is very strong. But he is an older dog
