oskar ate it about 15 minutes ago. He tore package but most of pill was still in there, just some broken pieces from 1 pill & powder on rug from pill.

The voc says 30mg each pill, if that helps & he weighs around 68 lbs & is almost 2 yrs old
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
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.

Your review helps connect Experts with other customers so your input is highly appreciated, and it is the only way that I am compensated. Thank you!
