Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 16 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.

This is actually a pretty moderate dose of the drug for a dog. We generally see moderate side effects at anything higher than 0.02mg/kg and Auggie had about 0.25 mg/kg. It can have a range of effects from sedation to difficult walking to low blood pressure to disorientation to cardiac or neurologic effects.

If he is having side effects other than panting, then I really must recommend you please take him to be seen on emergency. If he gets the low blood pressure, cardiac or neurologic side effects then he may need to be hospitalized with intravenous fluid therapy and there is a medication that can be given to counteract the effects of the buprenorphine.

I am at a point I need to know what questions you have. I hope that the information I provided has been helpful.

Please let me know if for any reason you need further clarification, have more questions, or were expecting a different type of answer.

If you received all the information you needed, then kindly submit a rating.
