Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I am a Vet tech with 30+ years and have interest in canine Health. The Dog needs to be seen in the ER If you think the dog has ingested Methamphetamines. There will be no questions as the Vet is interested in saving your dog.

You will see: agitation, hyperactivity, rapid heart rate, panting, seizures and muscle tremors. This can result in death if emergency treatement and supportive care is not offered.

This link below talks more about the toxicity of Amphetamines:

If the dog is showing any of the signs, the Vet is not going to question you about where the problem occurred, but is going to treat your dog to give it the needed help asap.
