Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question.

How long ago did Greta eat the Tylenol?

Do you have any hydrogen peroxide in the house?

Great. Thanks for the additional information.

Since Tylenol can be very toxic to dogs, and since she just got into it, the best thing to do is to get her to vomit up the pills. Details on how to make that happen can be found here:

After you give the first dose of Peroxide, walk her around for a few minutes. If she doesn't vomit within 10 minutes, you can give a second dose.

Once she vomits, make sure to check the vomit for the medication. If you see it, then you can simply monitor her, but if you don't see the pill in the vomit, or if you can't get her to vomit, then you'll need to have her seen by an emergency vet to get it out of her system before her body absorbs it.

I hope this helps.
