Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Chico. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
Hydroxyzine is pretty safe. How much does he weigh, and how many milligrams of hydroxyzine did he get?
thanks for that information. That means he got about 5 mg per kilogram of body weight (we calculate doses in mg per kg). He may seem drowsy for a few hours, but that should be the worst you see.
Give me a moment to do a little research, to be sure there is nothing else to be concerned about.
Occasionally, hyperactivity and fine muscle tremors have been reported. There is no antidote, you have to wait for it to wear off. How long ago did he get it? If you are worried and he got it in the last half hour, you could try inducing vomiting with some hydrogen peroxide ( 1 teaspoon in some milk or water). If he got it more than an hour ago, it is too late to try that.
