Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. I’d like to help with your concerns regarding Terry.
Ibuprofen typically comes in 200mg tablets. Are you certain it was 300mg that he ingested?
Are there any additional active ingredients in the medication ingested?
How long ago did he eat the medication?
How much does Terry weigh?
My apologies. For the Buproprion:
I recommend inducing Terry to vomit. Do you have hydrogen peroxide?
He will need about 45ml (3 Tablespoons) of hydrogen peroxide orally.
Then walk him inside on a leash with a garbage bag to catch his vomit.
If he does not vomit within 10-15 min of the hydrogen peroxide, he can have a second dose.
It is important that he vomit to the point of dry heaving, to know that his stomach is empty.
You are welcome. The toxic canine dose for Wellbutrin is 10mg/kg, so if he weighs under 65lbs, he may have experienced a toxic dose.
I recommend inducing him to vomit to limit any further absorption of the medication.
Since he is likely just above the toxic range at his weight, the risk of toxic side effects will be low. He may experience some sedation and lethargy however.
Any success to induce him to vomit?
