Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. That dosage can be high enough to be concerned about neurologic problems. A single over-dosage like that, though, most likely won't cause any problems, but I would monitor him for tremors, a head tilt, circling or lack of coordination. If you see any of those issues, I would have your vet evaluate him immediately. Most cats would have problems with chronic over-dosing. If you want to play it on the safe side, you can always bring him to your vet to induce vomiting (there are no good home remedies for inducing vomiting in cats, like there is for dogs). By the time it is done, though, the metronidazole will most likely be fully absorbed into the system, so monitoring and treating for any abnormalities is really the only thing you can do. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
