Thankfully, there's nothing of concern in that product. The dose of acetaminophen is a bit high but not toxic to him. The amount of phenylephrine is insignificant particularly because that drug is poorly bioavailable by the oral route in dogs. Sudafed containing the decongestant pseudoephedrine is the dangerous product and so I'm glad that wasn't available to him. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
