Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I suspect with one double dose that he will have no ill effectsThe veterinary formula lists:There were 467 single agent exposures to pimobendan reported to the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) during 2009-2013. Of the 427 dogs, 111 were symptomatic with tachycardia- increased heart rate (48%), vomiting (24%), hypertension-increased blood pressure (12%), lethargy (12%) and hypotension- low blood pressure (9%) being the most common clinical signs. Of the 41 cats, only 6 were symptomatic with 33% vomiting.The normal dose of this medication is 0.5 mg/kg total daily dose and clinical signs of toxicity were seen at 2.6 – 21.3 mg/kg. So if you gave 1 mg/kg today that is still below the toxic dose for his sizeI suspect you will see no ill effects from this ingestion but if you do notice that he is lethargic or hyper excited, restless, vomiting then please consider seeking emergency care but again I do not expect you to see these issuesI hope this makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today!
