Hi there, this is Dr. Sara. What does your kitten weigh?
That is a pretty big dose for a kitten that size. It can cause severe hypotension and i am concerned about her kidneys. Do you have an emergency hospital near by? I am not comfortable telling you that she will be fine.
I think you should call. Yes a bolus of IV fluids tonight and maybe some more subQ just to support the kidneys. Probably better safe than sorry. That is a 1mg /lb dose and the high end of the dose is 0.5mg/kg. Wish we could treat without having to go in for an emergency but I think it is probably necessary.
Most likely you won't see any outward signs (maybe lethargy) but internally the kidneys could be taking a hit. I would hate for her to have early kidney disease and we didn't try to prevent that from happening.
Were you able to get the Dr. on call?
Good morning, how is Doolie this am?
