Chromium and magnesium oxide aren't concerns. Is renntadine actually ranitidine? If so how many mg were ingested, please?

It was 1 150mg pill
Dog Specialist: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

Thank you. I would dose ranitidine at just 10 mg for Peaches. 150 mg is quite an overdose but clinical experience with ranitidine overdosage is limited. Single doses of 1,000 mg per kg of body weight in rodents didn't cause death. Be that as it may, it would be prudent to induce emesis with 10 mL (2 measuring teaspoons) of 3% hydrogen peroxide given with a small poultry baster placed between Peaches's cheek and cheek teeth. She should vomit within 15 minutes. If not , please repeat the same dose. Inducing emesis is predicated upon her ingesting the pills within the hour. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
