My dog may have...

My dog may have bitten through the plastic pill casing of a back aid tablet. Im not certain if he actually ate any of the tablet. He is a 75 pound golden retriever. This happened sometime last night, hes not showing any symptoms that anything is wrong, should i be worried?

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

Did not swallow any of the plastic, just crushed the pill inside and may have swallowed a few grains of the product

Not showing any symptoms

Friend, even if he had ingested the 500mg of Acetaminophen it will not be toxic to a 75lbs dog, he will be fine; no symptoms expected.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
