Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. My name is***** am happy to help you with your question. Give me just a moment to respond and type.
I had to look up the ingredients which are Phenylephrine HCl 2.5 mg.
I would estimate a dimes sized spot to be one ml.
So she may have consumed 0.5mg of phenylephrine which should not be a toxic dose where you have to run her into the emergency clinic for treatment
I would still monitor her for the next 12 hours.
Check her gums which should be pink and moist. A pale or purple color can indicate an oxygen circulation problem or shock. Dry gums are a sign of dehydration.
Put your hand just behind her left armpit and feel her heart. If a couple of hours from now it starts to race and pound against your hand that is a sign of trouble and she should see the emergency vet to check her blood pressure and heart.
So feel her heart now so you know how it feels before any drug has entered her system.
If she still has an upset stomach after last night give her 1/4 of a 10 mg Pepcid AC tablet every 12 hours. Pepcid AC is an over the counter stomach acid reducer.
A bland diet can help with an upset stomach as well. Try plain cooked chicken or left over turkey mixed with plain cooked rice or pasta.
You are welcome. Do you have any additional questions for me?
Ok great. You sound all set for now???? I will be online for the next few hours.
My pleasure. : )
I totally understand. All my kids are furry and short.
Is she still doing good?
