It's very unlikely that 10 of any commercial cough drops would be harmful to a dog the size of Duke but I can be more accurate for you if you can tell me the active ingredient(s) in the drops.

He tore up the bag -I do not have that info
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

I understand. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but I must assume he wasn't intoxicated. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
