I am sorry to hear what happened with Laurelle getting Pergolide. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

This drug can cause vomiting, diarrhea, low blood pressure, and excitement in dogs. If it happened in the last hour or less, you could try to induce vomiting with 2 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide; get her to drink the peroxide in some milk or ice cream.

If you can't get her to vomit or if it was more than an hour ago, we use a tranquilizer called acepromazine when dogs get pergolide (she is not the first dog to do this!).

Let me know how she is doing and what else I can answer.

I hope you were able to see my response; I have not heard back from you. How is she doing?
