Mable our 8yr old...

Mable our 8yr old beagle had a dental cleaning today. I gave her a pain pill (previcox 57mg.) About 5 min later, my husband gave her one also ( not knowing that I had just given her one). Should I try to make her vomit, or will she be ok with it, just really tired?

Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Actually, it is fairly easy for a dog to overdose on Prevocox so it may be as well to induce vomiting as a precaution. If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion then things should be OK. For the sake of speed, I will give you a link on how to do this best: LINK

2. However, if you fail to induce vomiting then what you can do is to put your dog on the likes of Pepcid for a few days, this drug { Which is a human over the counter drug } is very effective in reducing the likelihood of damage to the stomach lining. More information on how Pepcid is used in the dog including dose rates via this link: LINK

But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your Beagle's condition changes in any way or indeed if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
