Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

Have you seen any vomiting?

Am I correct in understanding it was around an hour ago that she consumed this?

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.

At 55 pounds, she's large enough to have received the 30mg extended release morphine tablet and, assuming no adverse reactions are seen because of sensitivity to this medication, she should not have any problems digesting this. We commonly use this medication in dogs her size and they can receive up to 125mg per dose, making 30mg of this medication a low concern.

If you wish to induce vomiting, this can be done roughly 2 hours following a medication consumption. Here are the instructions, use fresh peroxide from an unopened bottle: http://www.sunrisepetclinicaz.com/vomiting.html
