Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. This medication is considered an amphetamine. In general, amphetamines are considered very toxic to dogs. Even small amounts can cause life threatening problems. I am not sure how you tried to induce vomiting, but usually I recommend giving 1 tablespoon (15ml) of 3% hydrogen peroxide per 15 lbs of body weight orally. This would be 2 tablespoons for her. If vomiting hasn't occurred in 10 minutes, you can repeat this dosage once. If she vomits up the whole pill, that is great. I would just monitor for vomiting, diarrhea, drooling, agitation, aggression, panting, tremors or seizures. Any of these symptoms should be considered seriously and require immediate veterinary attention. If you tried this protocol for vomiting, it didn't help, you didn't see the pill, it looked like the pill was already partially digested or it has been over 30 minutes since ingestion; I would just get her to your vet immediately for fluid therapy, monitoring and supportive care as needed. This may be medications to control heart rate, nausea, blood pressure, seizures or sedatives. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. If your feel like all your questions were answered, please rate my service. Hope this helps.
