Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Hello again,

Now I did start typing my thoughts already as these situations demand we are all quick and proactive .

Now given his size, the Lyrica isn't a major worry and at this dose could cause lethargy and wobbliness. For the Celebrex, given that it is an anti-inflammatory it is more of a possible concern if that is what he got. At this dose, its not to a level where we'd fear liver/kidney damage but it does carry the risk of GI upset (vomiting, diarrhea, drooling, appetite loss), and bleeding stomach ulcers.

With this all in mind and given our time frame, we have a few options for Jameson. First, to err on the side of caution we could induce vomiting. To do that at home, you can administer 3% hydrogen peroxide orally at a dose of 1ml per pound. (2 teaspoons per 10 pounds of body weight). You can give it via dropper, syringe, turkey baster – we just want to get it in. After giving this orally, move the abdomen around or get your wee one walking about to get things mixing. This should usually lead to vomiting. If it is unsuccessful after 10 minutes then it can be repeated twice more. And if we still have no vomiting, then you'd need to consider seeing your local vet (or ER vet) so that apomorphine (a very strong injectable emetic) can be administered just get this out of the stomach and avoid any adverse issues.

As well or alternatively, you can also consider administering activated charcoal at this stage. This is available over the counter from the pharmacy (ask for the high strength version, not the one for gas) and works by binding any remaining material in the stomach. For activated charcoal, we tend to give 1-4 grams per pound every 8 hrs. This can be mixed with food to be fed or with water to syringe feed (do note that it stains, so keep it away from white carpets/clothes). This will just limit how much is absorbed and reduce the intoxication risk here.

Finally, after the above, we do want to try to address any potential GI upset here for the next 24-48 hours. To do so, you can consider offering a light diet option for a few days. 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, to protect his stomach and offset nausea, 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.

Overall, it does depend on which tablet he has had but its good you got half back in either case. Though as we cannot be sure the above would be ideal at this stage to prevent any risk of he did have the Celebrex.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
