Customer Question

My dog chewed up a bottle of visine advanced redness relief. I'm out of town and my husband called and told me this from home. I'm not there but want to know if he should rush them to the vet.

Hello, and thanks for writing in.

Expert:  Dr. Dave replied 1 year ago.

I would recommend getting Pebbles into a veterinarian today (right away, if possible).

This product contains an ingredient called tetrahydrozoline, which can cause a slow heart rate, low blood pressure, and drowsiness or sedation. The effects may be more pronounced in a smaller dog.

Expert:  Dr. Dave replied 1 year ago.

The veterinary clinic may need to observe Pebbles for several hours, monitor her heart rate, rhythm, and blood pressure. If there are abnormal changes, they may need to put her on IV fluids, or give appropriate medications to treat her symptoms.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if I can assist you and Pebbles further.
