Hello,

I am sorry to hear what happened with Shasta. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Give me a moment to do some research and calculations. How long ago did she get the pill?

Expert:  Rebecca replied 10 months ago.

Ok, she got a relatively low dose, but even low doses can cause agitation, vocalization, disorientation, etc. If she got the pill less than an hour ago, you might try getting her to vomit by giving her 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide in some milk or ice cream. If she got it more than an hour ago, it is too late to induce vomiting. Just watch her for signs of sedation, agitation, etc. I hope as big as she is, she won't be too much affected.
