Customer Question
daughter dropped on the floor...
my 35 lb Siberian Husky just ate a 20 mg Latuda that my daughter dropped on the floor. How will this affect the dog? Do we need to take her to the emergency vet since our regular vet is closed?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: She is 1 year old and her name is Nova.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Nova?
Customer: No she is otherwise healthy and active.

I am sorry to hear this has happened.

How long ago did your dog eat the medication?

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. G., Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

At the dose your dog ingested it is unlikely she will have any harmful side effects. Typically we see severe side effects with 10 times the amount ingested. It is likely you will see one of a couple things with this dose:

--Nothing

--Vomiting or upset stomach

--Some drowsiness or being a little quieter than normal

I would not expect anything else with this amount of medication. If any of these signs develop, they should resolve within 24 hours.

Any animal or human can have a reaction to any medication, so if you were to see anything very abnormal, a trip to the vet would be warranted.
