do you have some Theophylline that was prescribed for your dog?
What signs is your dog having?
Yes, vet prescribed Theophylline tablet as well as: Prednisolone 5mg (1/4 tablet 2 times daily for 3 days then decrease to 1/4 tab. 1x daily for 4 days) and Azithromycin 30 ml - 200mg/5ml (.3 mls orally 1x daily for 10 days)
DDX: Intrathoratic (at tracheal inlet) treacheal collapse.
Additional info: Had successful surgical repair of collapsing treachea April of 2002 until he made goose like sounds again 2 days ago at which time vet put him on Theophylline, and the above meds....
My question is what is the recommended dosage for the Theophylline (tablet) and timing between dosages?
Thank you for your help.
What size tablets do you have?
That is the dose I would use for TheoDur tablets. They are the extended release tablets. If you use a generic shorting acting, you would use a lower dose and could give it 3 times per day.
He was prescribed Theophyline 200 mg ... Give one-half (1/2) tablet by mouth three times daily (every eight hours) until gone.
He went started having seizures, foaming from mouth, tremors and stopped breathing when we reached emergency 30 mins later.. they tried to revive with no luck.
I'm not sure what to do now... I still haven't cleared from the fog .. is why my response time is lenghty.
Oh I am so sorry for your loss of your little guy. So that would be a high dose of Theophylline for a less than 4 pound dog. You could just call up your veterinarian and ask for an appointment to talk with the vet that saw him and tell them what happened and see what they have to say. It is best to talk first.
Here is a website that talks about theophylline.
Thank you for your kind words... He was totally human in our eyes.
