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 todaySo your dog weighs 90 pounds (41 kg) and ingested 900 mg so this dose is 900 mg/41 kg= 22 mg/kgThere is little data available regarding this drug’s acute toxicity. A 14-day study in dogs demonstrated no clinically observable adverse effects in the dogs that received 10 mg/kg (half the dose ingested). Dogs that received 25 mg/kg (close to what Tosh ingested), 50 mg/kg or 100 mg/kg per day for 10 - 11 days survived, but showed vomiting and melena (blood in stool); no hepatic or renal lesions were demonstrated in these dogs.The ASPCA APCC recommends GI protectants at acute dosages of 15 mg/kg and above and IV fluid diuresis at dosages of 30 mg/kg and above in healthy dogs. Since we are right in between these doses the ideal scenario is to induce vomiting since there is a possibility that this is still in his stomach and if there is no vomiting please consider a veterinary exam in the morning (or before if there are symptoms of vomiting/ diarrhea) to prescribe gi protectants for him as a precautionSince there is a chance your dog ingested this within the last 1 - 2 hours then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds (i.e. 3 tbsp) then walk around to mix it in the stomach and agitate the lining. If no vomiting within 10-15 minutes it can be repeated once only in hopes of inducing vomiting.I hope this information makes sense. Hopefully he didn't ingest them but if there is a possibility he did precautions should be made. If this occurred in the last few hours he wouldn't be clinical, it would be once the medication is metabolized which can be 3-6 hours after ingestionI am online another 20 minutes to assist with any additional questions you may haveIf you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!
