Customer: My 9 pound toy poodle accidentally ate a 25mg doxylamine succinate about 1 1/2 hours ago. We tried to get her to vomit but couldn’t. Should I be worried??

Customer: she is 4 months old
JA: Is there anything else the Vet should know?
Customer: she is acting normal and playful like she always is!!

Hello, my name is***** and I'd be happy to help you! My job here is to determine whether or not diagnostic tests need to be run or if we can manage things at home.

JustAnswer always offers a premium phone call for an additional charge; I am currently not available to talk via phone, but am happy to communicate via text!

Will you verify that this was plain Doxylamine and double-check that there aren't any other ingredients (i.e. pseudoephedrine or acetaminophen)?

- Dr. Annie

Only ingredient is 25 mg Doxylamine succinate. No other ingredients.


This dose is approximately 6 mg/kg. Typically, serious side effects occur at higher doses. You may still see drowsiness, lethargy, or sedation. Sometimes in younger dogs, you may also see paradoxical excitement or stimulation instead.

I don't expect any serious effects at this dose - potentially just transient side effects such as those mentioned above. However, on the off chance that she begins to show symptoms of muscle tremors, disorientation, problems breathing, etc, then I would bring her to the emergency clinic.

I hope this helps!

- Dr. Annie

Ok thank you so much!!!

You're very welcome!
