Customer Question

A flu is going through my dogs. Had one at emergency, she was given an antiemetic by injection and a pill form to take home. Now she is fine but older dog now has it. I gave him Emitrol. He is really having a hard time and is very uncomfortable. Praying I haven't now poisoned him. He weighs about 95 lbs. so I doubt the 3/4 tablespoon I gave him is not going to kill him.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what your dog ate?
Customer: He hasn't eaten anything. Are you a real person or is this some sort of computer program
JA: I'm an assistant to the Veterinarian. I work with them to help customers like you.
Customer: I gave him Emitrol. It is an antiemetic I bought at the drug store.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?
Customer: Dextrose 1.87g, levulose 1.87g, phosphoric acid 21.5 mg
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian (and real person) and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

What signs is he showing just now? Still nauseous and vomiting?

How long ago did you give the Emetrol ?
