Hopefully this will not cause any ill effects but as with any ingestion please monitor for vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, reduced appetite but I suspect you won't see any ill effects from this ingestion (my dogs have done this before too). I always do advise a broad spectrum dewormer after an ingestion like this to ensure that no worms or parasites were ingested as a precaution

If GI upset is seen then please take a few precautions:

- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg per pound every 12 hours for 3 days

- Leash walks to help the ingredients pass more readily of >15 minutes

- Next meal should be a bland diet of white rice and lean boiled meat such as chicken in small more frequent meals but waiting at least 12 hours after vomiting has subsided if there is this symptom

Indications your dog should be seen by a veterinary er sooner include: sticky gums that are pale, yellow, blue, purple, temperature rectally >103.5, progressive lethargy with less responsiveness to you, vomiting or diarrhea that includes blood, resting respiratory rate (breaths per minute) >60, swollen abdomen.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions I can assist with or clarify.

Pepcid? Is that the same as Pepto Bismol?

No please no pepto which isn't as effective for gi upset and turns the stool black which can be confused with an upper gi bleed. Pepcid is an over the counter antacid available at your local grocery or pharmacy

Should i expect vomiting? It’s been about 30’min

Not necessarily unless he has a sensitive stomach. Most of the time the parts are just digested but there are risks of vomiting and diarrhea with gi upset from this ingestion
