Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!So sorry that your dog is having a reaction to the sedative she was administered earlier todayDepending on what was used, the effects can last 6-8 hours but unfortunately I have had a few that have lasted 12+ hours and in rare cases they need medication to reverse the effects. Does she seem to be getting worse since this began?Dogs coming out of sedation can have a euphoric effect, some are vocal while others pace and are anxious. As long as her gums are nice and pink, she doesn't have any abdominal swelling, no vomiting or retching those are all good signs but if her symptoms are escalating you may have to consider a veterinary er to give her a reversal to see if she responds to removing the medication from her systemI hope this makes sense, I definitely would contact your veterinarian tomorrow to let them know the reaction she has had so that if she requires sedation in the future different medications can be administered...
