Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I ma so sorry that your guy is not feeling well. If this has been within a 2 hr window, you can induce vomiting to remove this pill by giving him Hydrogen peroxide 2 teaspoons. If i has been longer than 2 hrs, then the only thing you can do is to give your guy Pedialyte , 2 teaspoons every 4 hrs to flush this from his system. I have not been able to figure out what this drug is...perhaps it has another name? With any form of medication, flushing his system with fluids will help resolve this. Let me know if this drug has anther name.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
THanks for that information. This medication is used as a pain reliever and its side effect is respiratory suppression. Luckily for your guy, this has a large margin of safety and even though he is acting drunk, as long as he is not havig respiratory issues, he will get past this. Be sure, Like I said before, to give Pedialyte to help flush this out of his system. Watch him closely for the next 4-6 hrs for any signs of respiratory distress which would require a veterinary exam. IN most cases, even though this is an overdose, your guy should do fine unless you see any respiratory abnormalities.
YOu are very welcome!! I am sure you guy will do well with you caring for him.
