Customer Question
Hello, my dalmatian just...

Hello, my dalmatian just got caught in my bin, in which there was a packet of rilexine 300 tablets (for my smaller dog). He only seemed to have chewed packets that were empty as my last five tablets are untouched. There is a possibility that he could have chewed up one or two of them as there is only residue in one popped section. He is about 23-25kilos and approximately Five years old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is your dog's name and age?

Pongo he is five

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Pongo?

He is acting fine no abnormal behavior

Hi. Dr. W here. I'm sorry to hear this. That can be scary. Rilexine (Cephalexin generic) has a large safety margin dogs. If he ate one or two of them, that is not a problem at all.

You should not expect to see any negative side effects from this drug (unless of course he ate some of the plastic which might be irritating to his stomach).
