17 yrs old. Won't eat or drink. Gave her 14 mg hydromorphone

Customer Question

17 yrs old. Won't eat or drink. Gave her 14 mg hydromorphone crushed thinking this would let her go out easy 2 1/2 hrs ago. She is still with us. Katie is a small brittany. We have 2 and thought this would be better than taking her to the vet. Both are calm. Just thought this would be over by now.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Katie.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Katie?
Customer: She had always been fit and happy. She had lost her hearing and not seeing well for the last yr.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
