I don't see any ingredients that are overtly toxic but there aren't any studies that tell me what 20 pills would do to a 55 lb dog... most likely, however, nothing more than transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea. The herbs are particularly vexing because there isn't likely to be a specific amount of the bark or type of nettle on the label. To be prudent, I would induce emesis if Rylie ingested those pills within 2 hours. 3% hydrogen peroxide dosed at 45 mL (3 measuring tablespoons) by means of a small poultry baster placed between her cheek teeth and cheek should induce emesis within 15 minutes. If not, the same dose should be give once again. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
