Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.The active ingredient, simethicone, is not considered to be very toxic. Let me do some research on how many mg of simethicone she got and if it is a concern. How much does she weigh?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I think she I about 19kg
Expert:  Rebecca replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for that. I did my research, and simethicone is not absorbed from the GI tract, so there should be no systemic effects. You may see some vomiting and diarrhea. There is also peppermint in the Wind Eze, let me check about that.
Expert:  Rebecca replied 2 years ago.
In very large amounts, like a dog ingesting a large amount of pure peppermint oil, there could be problems, but she should be OK from the little bit in these tablets.
Expert:  Rebecca replied 2 years ago.
Mainly vomiting and diarrhea again would be seen.
Expert:  Rebecca replied 2 years ago.
Let me know how she is doing and if I can answer anything else.

Expert:  Rebecca replied 2 years ago.

If you are worried, always vet to check with a veterinarian who knows her. From the research I did, she should be OK and if she were mine I would just monitor her for now.
