Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you.

Percocet is a combination of Oxycodone and acetaminophen. The oxycodone part that was ingested of 5 mg is not likely to be of concern in this size dog, but the acetaminophen component is a pretty hefty dose. How long ago did this happen?
