I had the medicine in my mouth when he gave me the kiss. Normally I let it absorb for about 15 mins after it dissolves. He was acting very lethargic about 10-20 mins after, but then I woke him and got him to chew on his toy. He was awake and alert for about 15 minutes and now he just fell asleep. It has been a very busy day for him, although he took a long nap from about 11 am to 4 pm
Ok, I think so too. Thanks. It's just every little thing gets me so worried. I have only had him a week and we have bonded really well. For example, we were playing on the couch and he kept jumping up for his toy and then he jumped and fell to the wood floor. I think he fell on his back, I'm not sure if he hit his head or not, but he yelped in pain for a few seconds while darting across the room like a speeding bullet. I picked him up and held him and felt his skull and bones and he seemed fine, but I still worried for three days straight. This whole situation is like being a new parent. So are you saying that it's potentially unsafe for him to lick my fingers after I handle the buprenorphine tabs? One more question. His nails are getting a little long and sharp. Should I attempt to cut or file them, or should I wait until he goes to the groomer? thanks!
