I have an 8 month old poochon, she got my sons ADHD tablets out of his room. She has ate 1 maybe 2 10 mg about an hr ago she is not showing any symptoms but I am really worried
Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: A dog
Assistant: The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
