Hello, I am sorry to hear about Libby. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. How much does Libby weigh? How many mg each of cyclomethicone and isohexadecane are in the capsules? How long ago did she eat the capsules? If it was less than an hour, try to get her to vomit if you can by getting her to take some hydrogen peroxide in some milk or ice cream. Again, I need her weight to give you a safe dose of peroxide.

I am searching but not finding these drugs. Do you have the name of the product? And strength?If she is a 7 month old lab, she could probably take 1/2 tablespoon of peroxide in some milk or ice cream to induce vomiting. If you can get her to vomit the capsules we don't have to worry.

Still searching but finding little. Is this a prescription or an over the counter product? The brand name would be helpful. I have found that cyclomethicone does not appear to be very toxic.

I'm just following up on our conversation about Libby. How is everything going?
