My 35 pound puggle...

My 35 pound puggle ate one Tum Tropical Fruit Ultra Strength and I am worried he will die

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the Puggle will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the Puggle?

No that is all

Hello, thank you for contacting us at Just Answer. I will do my best to help you and your puggle. Can I get a little more information? What is your dog’s weight? How is she acting now?

Great! Sorry I called him a she earlier. Did he just eat one tablet?

No worries! Yes just one.
Ok. Can you look on the label of the bottle? I want to make sure there is ingredient to be concerned about but hopefully it is not on the list.
Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
I typed too fast. There is one ingredient in some antacids that is a concern for dogs. I want you to check your label for this ingredient.

I googled it and saw one ingredient to look out for that starts with an “x”-can’t remembwr exactly what it was it was but it definitely wasn’t on the ingredients list
Excellent! The ingredient is xylitol and is found in many sugar free items. As long as this was not in the Tums your pup should be just fine!
