My dog just got into a cupboard and ate approximately 4 antihistamine tablets (Aerius), the box says that adults should take 1 every 24 hours. She is not showing any signs if feeling ill but I am concerned about the quantity that she ingested. I do have a call in to a friend that is a veterinarian but thought I would also seek alternate advice in the meantime.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

I don't know the answer but is there an emergency vet you can call (check the phonebook for an after hours vet) ? They will need to know the active ingredient in the tablet and the number of mgs plus the weight of your dog to know if there's an issue.

The number for the ASPCA poison control is (888) 426-4435. They do charge you... but it is well worth it especially in these situations.
Good luck.. and I hope your pup is ok

All is well with my little buddy. She obviously tried to eat some of the tablets but didn't like the taste and spit them out. I had started to use the blister pack that she got into which made knowing how many pills she got into more of a guess. She hasn't skipped a beat since the scare.
Thanks so much for your responses!
