Hello again,

Now it is a shame so much time has passed as we are past a point where we can intervene and instead this is a stage where we have to just focus on supportive care and montioring for her. That said, its positive that she has had such mild signs, since we can see not just lethargy, sedation, GI upset (ie vomiting, diarrhea), wobbliness as we have here; but in severe doses we can see neurological signs (ie seizures, hallucinations, etc). But to not see those here tells us that her size is working in our favour and the dose she has had isn't severe despite being a strong dose.

Therefore, with that in mind, we'd just want to be supportive as this often will wane and run its course in 24- 48 hours. As we do, to offset any GI upset, you can consider offering a light diet option. Examples of an easily digestible diet include cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg, or meat baby food (as long as its free from garlic or onion powder). Ideally, we want to offer this as small frequent meals to keep the stomach settled. Further to this, if we see any more nausea with Summer, we can also treat with an antacid like Pepcid (More Info/Dose @http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/famotidine-pepcid) or Zantac (More Info/Dose @ http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/ranitidine-hcl-zantac). Whichever you use, we'd give this 20 minutes before food to allow absorption and of course double check with your vet before use if your wee one has any known health issues or is on any medications you haven't mentioned. Otherwise we do want to encourage her to drink to help flush this out and the nest is good (since we like to have them somewhere calm, quiet, and where they cannot fall). Of course, if you do this and monitor her for the next 24 hours but you did see any of those more worrying signs (unlikely at this stage) or if her signs didn't keep waning, then we'd want her seen by her vet urgently for Iv fluids to flush this out quicker and get her back to normal. Else we can let her sleep this off and treat supportively while it runs its course.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
