my 10 -12 lb cat took 30 mg of Temazepam (sleeping pill) is awake & wobbly ... what do I do
Age: 2; Female; Breed: domestic shorthair
I am very worried about this kitty!! She needs to see an emergency vet ASAP, before too much more of the medication has a chance to be absorbed and digested by her system. She needs to be hospitalized and monitored by a vet and will likely need to be on iv fluids to protect her kidneys and liver, and she may need some medications to correct heart rate and blood pressure fluctuations. Heat support may also be necessary to keep her warm, or cooling measures may be needed to reduce a fever. Your vet will want to call ASPCA's poison control hotline, which will cost at lest $60 to get some treatament information on how to help your kitty. It is imperative that she be seen right away, probably best if she sees an emergency vet as she will require round the clock care initially. Please have her seen quickly. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. If this has been helpful, please hit the green accept button. Good luck!
