Q. My about 20ibs dog ate a lot of reeses peanut butter cups. The amount was unknown but there was a lot of wrappers on the floor. Will he be ok?

Answered By

A. It really depends on the amount he has eaten. If you are unsure then it is best to make him vomit, this ideally needs to be done within 2 hours of ingestion. If this time has passed it will be symptomatic treatment so could be iv fluids or just feeding charcoal. I would recommend contacting your vet or emergency vet straight away.
