Metoprolol pill before I could get it out of his mouth. This happened about 15 minutes ago, he is acting normal at this time. Do we need to be concerned?

Hello, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****; I am sorry you have this problem with your dog; I am sure you are concerned. I will do my best to help you today. But, first, I need to ask you a few questions to be well informed and give you the best advice.

Any pre-existing medical conditions?

How many tablet did he eat?

No, very healthy dog.
He are a 50 ml pill.
He ate a single 50ml pill.

Thank you for that information. Please give me a moment to type your answer.

Not likely for one single dose of Metoprolol 50mg to be a problem for a healthy 20 lbs dog. I recommend keeping an eye on him for the next 6 hours. Symptoms that would require an ER vet visit are weakness, disorientation, panting excessively, pale gums, etc.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

Good afternoon. I hope I have given you a satisfactory answer. If you have any follow-up questions, please reply here, and I'll be happy to assist you.

Thank you for visiting Just Answer.
