Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Hailey ate all those pills. It may be too late to induce vomiting, but it is still worth a try. I would give her some 3% hydrogen peroxide mixed in milk. You can give 2 tablespoons of it.
