Customer Question
My dog is Bassett Hound...
My dog is Bassett Hound about 40 pounds she got ahold of a nighttime cold gel cap less than 30 minutes ago. She didn’t eat the outside, it looks like she just broke it, a little liquid was on the floor. I’m not sure how much of the liquid she injested. Should I give her peroxide to induce vomiting?

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I AM NOT SET UP TO MAKE PHONE CALLS, BUT I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ONLINE. THE WEBSITE SENDS THE REQUESTS; NOT MYSELF. If she didn't ingest the pill, she will most likely be fine.

Can you tell me the exact brand of the medication?

Any symptoms of illness so far?
