I am missing my bottle...
I am missing my bottle of triamterene/hctz 37.5/25 off the counter. My 1 year old big coon hound did chew up a plastic pill bottle yesterday apparently (just found pieces) but I cannot find pills. He is about 70 lbs. It is possible he ate about 15 tablets. He acts perfectly normal however. Should I watch for any signs or symptoms of toxicity?

I am sorry to hear you are concerned about Bruno getting these pills. How long ago did he chew the plastic pill bottle? If it has been 24 hours and you are not seeing any symptoms by now, he probably did not get the medication or did not get enough to be sick.

Thank you Dr. Rebecca! It has been 24 hours at least. He’s such a tall big guy and surfs counters often. I haven’t seen any untoward effects at all but I didn’t realize it until this morning when my bottle was missing and my son stayed he cleaned up an amber chewed up vial yesterday. Bruno seems perfectly normal, thank you for easing my mind.

You would see him drinking and urinating a lot, and possibly signs of his blood pressure being too low (confusion, weakness, pale gums) so if it has been this long and he is OK, I would expect nothing more.

You are welcome! Please let me know how he is doing and if you have other questions.
