You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

Which antibiotics and how many mg of them were ingested by Goose, please?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
cefdinir 500 mg

Thank you. This cephalosporin can be administered to dogs at nearly the dose Goose ingested. Transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea might arise but Goose should remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.

We don't know for sure if he ate them

I understand. Either way he would remain well! Thank you for your kind accept. I appreciate it. I can't set a follow-up in this venue so please return to our conversation - even after rating - with an update at your convenience. You can bookmark this page for ease of return.
