Customer Question

My 55 pound almost 1-year-old dog may have taken half of a phentermine this morning I gave her peroxide and made her puke she was acting fine just don't know how much could've been absorbed if she was chewing it up
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: The reason I think she took it is because I got distracted when I went to take them and had to set them down and I don't know if I took them or if she took them but I know they were gone
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: So to be safe I gave her peroxide and she puked a bunch so I'm sure none was absorbed from her stomach I just don't know if any was absorbed or early when she actually chewed them up
JA: What is the dog's name?
Customer: If she chewed them
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: Chewy
