He is a 30...

He is a 30 lb Boston terrier. He was accidently given my husband's Blood pressure medication Valsatran 160 mg. I used peroxide to induce vomiting. He just vomited. Will he be okay? He had just taken it 5 minutes before I induced. We can't find the pill but everything he ate came up. He had had his dry dog food and then got the pill in a little wet food.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your husband's Boston Terrier will be able to digest that. What is the Boston Terrier's name?

Freckles.

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

He has been diagnosed with lymphoma and is taking prednisone and an antacid which is what we were preparing to give him. he seems to be acting normal

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help with this concern about Freckles.

What was the milligram amount of the Valsartan that he ate?

You shouldn't be charged any additional fees since I rejected your telephone request but customer service can be contacted if there's any concerns that you were.

Fortunately, Freckles should be fine. Even if he didn't vomit the majority of the pill after you induced vomiting with hydrogen peroxide, he should be fine.

An experimental study was done with this drug in dogs with cardiac failure to determine if it would be as effective for them as it would be for humans. 400 mg per day was given for 3 months and no adverse side effects were seen. There weren't any significant benefits to the canine patients which is why it's not used but the point I'm making is that 160 mg ingested by a 30 pound dog shouldn't pose any toxicity issues.

I hope this helps to reassure you. Deb
