its possible my dog may have just swallowed a salazopyrin tablet 250mg. What should i do?

Hello. Thank you for asking your question. My name isXXXXX will try to help.

How much does Lucy weigh?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

18 kilos

We actually use that medication in dogs. The normal dose, for an 18 kg dog, is 360-720 mg three times a day.

So, I would not expect Lucy to have any problems besides some mild gastrointestinal upset with lack of appetite, vomiting, or diarrhea.

But there is a good chance you will not see any signs at all.

I hope this helps.
