Hi there --
Welcome to Just Answer.
How long ago did this happen? and how many and what concentration (how many mg) ?
About 20-30 minutes ago. 210 mg. of armour are missing. I looked all around and found the container that had been knocked off the nightstand empty and behind the door. I don't know if he rolled the cup around the room and lost them that way or if he ate them. I just checked on him and he is ok. His pupils look ok...not dilated.
Is that 210 mg total -- that he may have eaten ?
Ok -- if your cat is in good health otherwise -- it would be best to induce vomiting
This is done with hydrogen peroxide --
how do I do that?
Do you have hydrogen peroxide or can get soem very very quickly -?
I don't think I have any of that either...I will have to call a neighborl
Ok -- give 1 teaspoon per 5 pounds -- orally --
this can be a chore -- and you will need ot be careful that it is not inhaled --
vomiting should occur with in 15 minutes -- if not, you can repeat this up to 2 times --
This medication is not highly toxic -- but that amount id very large - - and if veterinary assistance is not accessable then this is the best thing to do to prevent any symptoms before is has been about 2 hours after ingestion (does not work after that time)
ok..she has some and is bringing it down
thank you. It has not been longer than 40 minutes
going to get it...are yoj goig to hang on?
There is not a veterinary literature on the toxicity of this product -- I can find reference that 60 mg is LIKELY not to be toxic -- but no guarantees ==
so if your cat is otherwise healthy it may be best to err on the side of safety --
Hydrogen peroxide can be mixed with a bit of food --- but cats will frequently simple refuse even attempts to force
I gave it to him...and I think it is already starting to work.
Usually takes a little bit --
he threw up twice...there was a milky film around the food...and hair...is that just the hydrogen peroxide or could it be the dissolved thyroid pills (which are white)
Generally -- the action of the hydrogen peroxide will empty the contents of the stomach -- so if it was less than an hour ago -- and vomiting has occured -- it likelyemptyied the contents.
I cannot find a reference as to what you should look for with this supplement at usch a level in cats -- ususlly I like to give this -- just in case --
it was less than an hour for sure...I just put them out on our way to bed. I won't be doing THAT again...time for a new procedure. Thank you!
but I can give you a reference link --
There is a charge for service --
you said twice. Should I give him another round of the hydrogen peroxide or not? Oh that is a good link. For your service. I know...I have to click the accept button and it is $18.00
But generally -- you can feed yoru cat after this in about an hour or two -- something small and bland -- not much --
what would you recommend as small and bland?
NO -- not if it produced vomiting -- more doses are in case there is not vomiing with the first
Possibly a bit of chicken or ground beef boiled -- cooked white rice -- mixed up
of a small bit of cat food --
do not be surprised if yoru cat is not hungry until tommorrow.
You are welcome
