My dog just swallowed Allopurinol. 100mg pills, perhaps 20.

Customer Question
My dog just swallowed...

My dog just swallowed Allopurinol. 100mg pills, perhaps 20. We gave her 3% hydrogen peroxide. 3 teaspoons (she's 32 lbs). She didn't vomit within 15 minutes, so we gave her another 3, but she fought us and I don't know if we got all of it in. It's been another five minutes.

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?

Harlee

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

She's 8 months old

Do you know how long ago Harlee would have eaten the pills?

Is she showing any signs of behavior changes or breathing difficulty?

We couldn't wait any longer, so we called poison control and we are on route to the animal hospital. .
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Beth, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Ok great - that is probably the safest thing as they can give her something stronger to induce vomiting and give activated charcoal if needed-

The toxic dose in mice is 78mg/kg, and Harlee ingested 137mg/kg if she ingested 20 pills give or take.

It sounds like it has been less than 2 hours since she got into it so hopefully they can make her vomit with some apomorphine or do a gastric lavage to wash out her stomach.
