Okay....great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

As I'm sure you know, Chantix is used to stop smoking, and when a dog eats even a small amount, you can be concerned about things like the symptoms you might expect would include excitation, hyperactivity, rapid shallow breathing, drooling, vomiting, and diarrhea, seizures and even death.

Because of this, the best thing to do is to use the perxoide to try to get him to vomit. It's pretty easy to do, and you can find directions here: http://sunrisepetclinicaz.com/vomiting.html.

If you're unable to get him to vomit at home, then you should absolutely have him seen by a vet immediately so they can get him started on some medication to lessen the symptoms and flush his system.

I hope this helps.
