Hello! I am sorry your pet is having problems. My name is***** I am a licensed veterinarian with Just Answer. Thank you for visiting the site. I hope to be of great help to you. Please give me 10 minutes to consider your pet’s case and respond.

What have you tried so far? Is your pet taking any medications? How long has this been going on? Does your pet have any preexisting medical conditions?

We haven't done anything. She's a healthy 1 year old lab. Takes simpirica monthly. She ate 325mg of Tylenol and 5mg phenylephrine. Not sure if I need to induce vomiting. This happened almost 10 mins ago.

Give your pet 4 teaspoons of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide by mouth. You can get it from human drug stores. Here is a video showing you how. If your dog does not vomit within 10 minutes, give another dose.

If your pet has problems such as depression, tremors, vomiting or not eating later, time to go to a vet. Usually, symptoms show up within 4-12 hours. Do you have any questions about what I said?

No I understand. Thank you.

You are very welcome. I wish I could do more. Let me know if you need more help. You can still chat with me later. I hope your pet recovers soon! Thank you for using Just Answer.

Thank you

Thanks again. Let me know if you think of any more questions or need more help with your pet’s case.
