Customer Question

My dog ate some caffeine pills 9 hours ago. He is still restless and his back legs are very ridged. I took him to the vet and they monitored him for an hour and a half. They said he would crash and sleep it off. What should I do now?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What milligrams were the tablets?

Did the vet induce vomiting or give any treatments?

Were you sent home with any treatment?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I managed to contact an emergency vet in my area when I did not get a response within an hour, has I had marked him urgent. I will not be needing this service and will be asking for a refund.
