Customer Question

She is a 48 lb sharpei mix. She is on Apoquel. I'm out of town and 2 different dog sitters gave her meds today. I'm concerned with overdose
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?
Customer: She took a 16.5mg and a 5.4mg pill at 4:30 then again at 8
JA: Where does the dog seem to hurt?
Customer: Nothing so far I'm just concerned that od is possible and wanting to know what signs to look for
JA: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?
Customer: And if signs show if she should be rushed to emergency
JA: Is the dog eating normally?
Customer: She doesn't eat after 8 so we can't gauge by food intake

I am sorry to hear this has happened.

The normal dose for a dog her size is going to be about 9-13mg each dose. She has gotten about 3 times that dose.

How is she doing right now: any vomiting, any obvious discomfort?
