Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Can you please tell me Andrew's weight, the mg of potential ingestion, and how long ago this occurred? Thank you

Expert:  Dr. Altman replied 11 months ago.

Very commonly, with high levels of progesterone, we can see a very rapid onset of ataxia and disorientation (looks like they are drunk). It is self-limiting and they tend to make complete recoveries after a few hours. If your dog did not ingest a high dose you should not see any issues at all.

For example if you have a 70 pound dog that ingested a 100 mg tablet then you should be just fine but monitoring for these symptoms is always best and knowing what to monitor for...

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today
