My dog ate approx 10 pepcid complete tablets sometime today. He seems to be normal.
What will happen to my dog who ate some of the pills?

Cormiert, The first thing you ALWAYS do is call your vet. Animals do not metabolize medications like humans. One aspirin can kill a cat.,a pan of brownies can kill a dog. Just as you would if an infant ate Pepcid, you should treat your dog the very same way. Do not waste a minute if your dog has injested anything he/she should not have. I like this chat room for all the valuable info I have recieved from other people but, if you thought you may have taken something that would make you sick or could even be fatal ,I do not think you would take the time to come on this site for an answer. The very same courtesy should have been given to your pet. Because this quesion was posted over 24 hours ago I guess I can assume your dog is O.K. Animals can not tell us when they hurt so next time do not waste even 1 minute! Good Luck (to your dog) Fall Queen
He should be ok. I accidentally dropped a 10mg valium and my 20 lb. jack russell snatched it up before I could get it. Called the vet and he told me she'll be a little sleepy tonight. Sleepy? The dog was Loopy! All up in my face, acting very unlady like! Sorry, don't mean to make fun of dogs and meds. In the future, should he ever ingest anything hurtful, give him one tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide. He'll throw it up. Just make sure it's something you want to come out. Some items and solvents actually can do more harm coming back up. Check with the vet in the future.
He shouldnt have heartburn for a couple of days.Just see if your dog acts weird if he does tell the vet but I doubt its anything serious
