Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

How are you both doing there?

What milligrams was it and what does Baby weigh?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
5 mg and she weighs about 85lbs. She is a lot better this morning. She went out to go to the bathroom this morning, but is still a little wobbly.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Hello again,

My apologies that we are playing time zone tag here. In any case, I wanted to let you know that her weight works in our favor as this is only a small dose for her size. So, we'd only expect mild signs like depression, wobbliness as you noted, and weakness. Generally speaking this will reduce over 24 hours without lasting harm. Therefore, do just keep an eye on her for 24 hours but as you monitor encourage her to drink just as this will flush the drug out quicker and help get her completely back to normal for us without any long term issue.

Best wishes,

Dr. B.

She was just a little wobbly yesterday, but ate and drank water yesterday. She was acting her normal self chasing the cats. I think she will be fine. Thanks for your input.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Lovely, I am glad to hear all is well and again we'd expect no further issue from this. :)

Have a lovely day,

Dr. B.
