Customer Question

I gave my dog interceptor on Weds. He vomited that night. Yesterday, he stopped eating. And today he is lethargic and weak.I called the Vet and have an appt for tomorrow morning. Is there any thing that would act as an antidote to interceptor plus, because I think that is what caused him to be sick.

Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. There is no specific antidote to the ingredients in Interceptor. I would treat him by giving injections for vomiting, IV fluids; treat the symptoms and support him until he got better. If you look at his gums, do they look pink or are they pale? If he is weak, I worry about him being anemic (low red cell count) so check to see if he looks pink or not. Can you take his temperature at home?

I can't administer IV fluids or take him temp. His gums are a little pale. He is so lethargic he won't stand. Will he be ok til AM or should I get him to an emergency vet tonight?

I am worried if his gums are pale. If he is too weak to stand, having him checked tonight might be best. Let me know how he is doing and what else I can answer.
