Hi, Last Saturday I took my 5 year old, 30 lbs French Bulldog
, Jean-Pierre to the vet because he was trembling, hiding and wasn't himself. The vet said he was dehydrated and also has an ear
infection. He suffers from ear infections several times a year since he was 3, so I wasn't surprised, but perhaps this time it was worse because he was trembling. They treated him and also prescribed Meta-Cam for the inflammation and pain. Since the visit I have cleaned his ear and applied his ear medication, Baytril
. From the visit to the following Friday, JP, recovered and was his happy self again. But around midnight Friday he got up and vomited 3 times, the first 2 times where food and the 3rd time was bile. I thought his ears might be acting up. So, for the first time, I decided to give him the Meta-Cam, Oral Suspension. The vet gave us the 1.5mg/mL and told me to give him 30mL. Moments later he started panting excessively and his eyes
were rapidly moving. I was terrified and called the emergency clinic. Apparently they said the dosage was high. Also, I stupidly gave it to him on an empty stomach
, after he had vomitted. After several hours JP was able to calm down enough to sleep. Saturday morning came and he was sliggish. His balance was off and his eyes were still moving weird, but just not as bad as the night before. He was able to make himself walk, but he was kind of confused and lopsided. But he was a trooper. He did drink alot of water and did eat a little. Now it is Sunday morning. He is still a bit off. His eyes are getting better. He doesn't have an appetite yet. His walking
is still not 100%. When he walk he tilts his head to the right side. His worse ear infection is his left ear. Thinking back, I recalled several years ago, he had this same episode, and I believe it may have been caused by some other imflammatory med. I basically take him to the vet due to his ear infections. He suffered the same panting and eye movements. I can honestly say that he might of had an allergic reaction? Is it worth me taking him to the vet? If I do, what will they do? What is your opinion about this incident? Thank you for your time and insight.
