Customer Question
He is a 26...

He is a 26 pound 6 month old puppy that might have gotten to 3 tabs of 10 mg celexa. I am not sure that he got any. None of the pills were wet.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the puppy?

Nothing seems wrong. I am just worried that he ate the celexa

Hello. Fortunately, even if your puppy ate all 3 tablets, that is far from a toxic dose, so you have nothing to worry about and shouldn't see any problems. Go ahead and feed him normally and stick to his normal routine.
