Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- How long has it been since she took the Lexapro?
2- Do you have hydrogen peroxide 3%?
Let's move quickly and try to induce vomiting; we can finish our discussion later. To induce vomiting this is what you can do:1- Give her 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting.2- Allow her to walk for a minute and move her belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If she does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.
3- Please let me know if she vomits, I will be here on stand bye for the next 20 minutes waiting for you.
I am sorry, I can not make a live call. But, I can answer your question on this thread. Or, I can opt out and allow another expert to help you.
I am sorry for the confusion, the site automatically submits the call request, not me. I am sorry.
Did you see the pills in the vomit?
Did she take the pills after dinner?
Friend, at this point if you are not certain if she vomited all of the pills I would have her checked by ER veterinarian and they can start her on large doses of activated charcoal and monitor for any symptoms, that would be the best option. Or, you can monitor at home for the next 24 hours; if you see symptoms like lethargy, sedation, changes in respiration, tremors, etc. have her checked immediately by nearest ER veterinarian. Not much more we can do from home at this point, I am sorry.
