Yes. She won't sit still. And constantly moving around. Won't eat or drink either
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Dan, Dog Veterinarian replied 3 years ago
Thank you for the information. With this drug anything over 1mg/kg of body weight can cause serious and life threatening heart arrythmias, since this maltese at 5mg/kg then we need to get her help. The agitation will get worse and can last up to 72 hours and without an ECG we don't know what it's doing to the electrical system of the heart. Since she ate this more than 2 hours ago it is too late to get her to vomit it up. She must go to the emergency vet for treatment to protect her heart. Prescription intravenous drugs are needed to counter act the effects. If you don't have a designated emergency vet in your area then call the regular vet office number they are required to have after hours instructions. Unfortunately there is nothing at home that will help , she needs the vet very soon. Because of the risk of heart attack, this can't wait until morning.
