Hello and thank you for asking your question on just answer. My name isXXXXX will try to help.

 

How much does she weigh?

 

How many mg of zoloft did she eat?

 

How long ago did she eat it?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

she is a snoodle weight is around 8-10lbs.

 

she grabbed 1 zoloft off the floor at my mother's house 50 mg (tiny blue) pill approximately around 8pm.

 

Mother gave her some perioxide about 20 minutes later and she did vomit. She did not find the pill though. Could it have liquified??? She also gave her some thing to eat right after the pill and in the vomit her food was there.

Maybe she did not eat it?

 

If she chewed it up, it would be difficult to see in the vomit.

 

At the dose she ingested, you may see her eyes dilate and she may refuse to eat.

 

But it is not a toxic dose.

 

If you see any other unusual behaviors, or symptoms, take her to the vet right away as she could be having an adverse reaction to the zoloft. She may be laying on the floor because she was just vomiting. If she does not perk up once the vomiting stops, I would take her to the emergency vet.

 

We do prescribe zoloft to dogs.
