Definately speak to your vet. They can look it up for you to make sure it's one that all you need is some live yoghurt, which is what happened when one of mine ate some AB's.
I did nearly lose a pup who got into a drawer and ate Mefenamic Acid Tablets and from then on all my pills, even herbal ones, are kept in a high up cupboard where the dogs simply can't reach.

Re: Help! My dog had eaten antibiotics


Thanks all, they all seem fine this morning. 6 x 500mg tablets were eaten although I did find little bits of powder on the floor so hopefully they ate the capsules and didn't take in much of the actual medication (why don't they eat the tablets I am TRYING to give them like this!!)

Vet said to expect a bit of diarrhea and advised to just keep an eye on them but so far all looks ok...phew!

Re: Help! My dog had eaten antibiotics
