Customer Question
My dog just ate...

My dog just ate the wrong dose of Bravecto- she is a 22 lb terrier mix but she got the dose intended for our 110 lb yellow lab. what should we be doing now?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?

The dog's name is margaret.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Margaret?

She doesn't usually eat much, today she ate very well immediatly after taking the medication.

Friend, your dog took a dose of 1,400mg of Bravecto; this dose is not likely to be fatal to a 22 lbs dog. But, it can cause vomiting, bloody diarrhea, lethargy, etc. otherwise your dog will be fine. I would keep an eye on her for the next day if she develops vomiting and diarrhea this is what you can do:

1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or Imodium. Start her on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/2 tablet every 12 hours for 1-2 days. You can buy Pepcid AC over the counter in any pharmacy.

2- No food or water for 8-12 hours. Need to give her gastrointestinal tract time to rest.

3- After 8-12 hours offer a small amount of water. Wait half hour, if no vomiting, offer a small amount of rice (50%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) 4-6 times a day. Keep on this diet for several days then wean into regular diet.

4- If she continues to vomit or lethargic after doing the above she will need to be seen by your family veterinarian for a hands on examination and supportive care.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
