Exclamation Panic

I have been down with a very bad cold. I got up to take some cold medicine and accidently sent a cold pill flying while trying to pop it out of the foil packaging. Milo was in the kitchen and I picked him up almost immediately, but have been unable to find the pill. Don't know what to do as I don't think he had time to get the pill, but I am not absolutely sure as I have been unable to find it so far. I put him in his crate immediately so I could search for the pill without him finding it. I live out in the middle of nowhere and don't know what to do. I am extremely worried. Advice appreciated.

I would call a vet. I did that one time with one of my script meds. I was just sure there was no way Bu could have gotten it, but later in the day, I found it flattened on the carpet in front of his crate. They are very bitter, so when it started to dissolve he dropped it.

Yes, call your vet and explain what happened. Better to be safe then sorry.

ChisRule & Ms. P,

Thank you so much for responding. I just wanted to let you know that we found the pill! I knew that it had hit the stove when it went flying. My hubby came home and found it. It had fallen through the burner area and was inside the stove. I have never felt so relieved in my life!!!!

I'm so glad. Tylenol is in most cold meds and it can be deadly.

I have to say, I PULLED an ibuprofen out of Dolly's mouth when she was a puppy, so I know just how you feel! Whew!

I am so glad that you found it! I have dropped pills like that before ranging from birth control to a gas pill like exlax and as soon as I hit the floor to look for it I have two wet Chi noses trying to help. Luckily I have always found it but there is that moment of panic when you think they could have found it first!

You are welcome and believe me, I do know how you feel. That was the most frightening thing I've experienced with him. I know the relief you felt when you found it too! I'm glad all turned out so well.
