Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.
I'm sorry for this concern for Penny. I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind:
1. Could you tell if any of the pills were present in the vomit?
2. Is she still nauseous?
3. Is she acting lethargic?
Thanks for the answers to my questions.
Please give me a few minutes to type back a response for you.
Unfortunately, my state board prohibits phone conversations but I hope that this format continues to be is acceptable to you. My apologies for the inconvenience.
Please let me know if you'd like to continue in this format. Deb
Great. I'll continue typing my response. Deb
Pramipexol is a drug which will cause vomiting at very low doses so it's not surprising that she did vomit; it's a shame that she didn't expel some of the pills:( Most of the other signs which might be seen include central nervous system depression, balance issues, possibly increased heart rate and tremors.
If she's only lethargic and trembling, then the symptoms should resolve within about 24 hours or so. However, if her heart rate is elevated (normal is between 80-120 beats/minute) and/or she's continuing to vomit, then a vet visit may be prudent.
I hope this helps. Deb
I'm just following up on Penny. I was curious to know how she's doing today? Deb
That's fantastic news; you must be so relieved:)
Now you can enjoy the day without worrying about her. Have a good turkey day:) Deb
