Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there. Thanks for the question. Let me see if I can help. Im going to look a few things up. Give me a minute and Ill post if this is a dangerous dose.
Ok. Given the size of your dog, I think you should be ok but that doesnt mean you aren't going to see some effects. You are likely to see evidence of an increased heart rate and blood pressure - panting and restlessness. Then lethargy or depression. The danger is if you see seizures. If you live close to your vet, you may want to take the dog in for fluids to help dilute out the ventipulmin. It is rapidly absorbed so making the dog vomit will not help. Its already in the dog's system. If you choose not to go to the vet, try to keep the dog calm. No exercise as her heart rate will already be elevated from the drug. If she shows any signs of seizures- unresponsive, rapid blinking, or leg twitches, get her to a vet immediately. I hope this helps. Best wishes.
