Good evening. Can you tell me what kind of allergy pill it was and strength? There should be a name and milligram on the box or pill vial.

Thanks for the speedy reply. It would be worthwhile to make him vomit. This medication is not commonly used in dogs. Here are the directions: http://www.sunrisepetclinicaz.com/vomiting.html

You'll want to watch out for prolonged vomiting, diarrhea, lethargic behavior, heavy sleep where you cannot rouse your pet, etc. By making him vomit, it's likely he will show no signs of consumption at all but if you do see concerning symptoms contact your local vet and have a physical exam performed pronto.

If my answer has helped you, please take the time to leave positive feedback. This is how experts are compensated for their time. If questions remain, reply and I will help you further.
