Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
Can you tell me the active ingredient in the pour on tick and flea treatment? I am searching for Tixagon and cannot find it. I need to know what was used, to tell you if there is an antidote or treatment.
OK, I found it : amitraz. That will not treat fleas, only ticks. It can be very toxic if he got too much. How long ago did he get it? I would bathe him and try to remove as much as possible.
I am doing research; Pomeranians seem to be more sensitive to this drug. Even the listed dose can be dangerous in them.
There is an antidote but it is not a home remedy: Atipamezole. If seizures develop, he may need valium. This may last for up to 3 days. There is a risk of death, if the heart rate gets too slow. It sounds like your Toy Pom needs medical attention for this.
I hope you were able to see my responses; I have not heard from you. How is your Toy Pom doing?
