Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, my name isXXXXX am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
how long ago did this happen?
About 3 hours ago
I see. did your dog vomit at all yet?
did your dog vomit at all yet?
The toxic dose for a dog is 0.02mg/kg
your dog weighs about 5 kg
I would probably start up vitamin K1
he will need 5mg daily for 4 weeks
where would I get that?
you can try a pharmacy like CVS or a health foods store, your vet would have it for sure or another vet hospital in the area that is open.
ideally in the future, any toxin exposure should be treated within two hours with the induction of vomiting and by your vet giving activated charcoal
I've tried all the vet offices first and no one is open! Do you think whole foods would have it?
should I also take him to my vet on Monday?
they may have it at whole foods
How serious is this. Should I stay home tonight to monitor him?
Bloodwork shows changes after 72 hours, so no need to go to the vet since it has been this long, I would just start up the vitamin K. You dont really need to stay home to monitor him, just keep him crated so he stays out of trouble
I will! We have an older dog (cockapoo) who has never gotten into anything! Both our dogs came from a rescue and they're as sweet as can be.
The things you would be looking for are associated with bleeding, so any blood in the stool or any large bruises would warrant a visit to the vet
But Simon is a little devil!
As long as you start up the vitamin K, I would not expect any problems. Some dogs like your simon like to eat everything toxic, so be very careful in the future!
Thank you so much! I'll start him on it before we go out.
you're very welcome. I wish you the best with Simon. Have a great day!
