By 68 lb boxer ate a small portion of one red sudafed. Should i be concerned?? And if, what to do.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

The voc says 30mg each pill, if that helps & he weighs around 68 lbs & is almost 2 yrs old

The "box" vs voc - sorry for typos

Ok, thank you for the information.

If you are certain he only received 1 pill, or less than one pill, no intervention is needed.

Great - thank you!

Though Sudafed can be toxic to dogs at higher doses, he did not receive a toxic dose.
