Customer Question
My sister just called...

My sister just called me and said that my 5 month old mutt (dog) at about half a bottle of Prilosec while chewing up the bottle... Any concerns??

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the mutt?

She had her Rabies, kennel cough and whatever her last shots are to be on the 30th.. She chews everything, not strange..

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your dog, please? Omeprazole appears to be well-tolerated even when ingested in excess. The LD50 - the dose that kills 50% of test subjects - in rats after oral administration is reportedly greater than 4,000 mg/kg of body weight. Humans have tolerated oral dosages of 360 mg per day without significant toxicity. Massive overdoses are treated symptomatically and supportively. There is no specific antidote.

I have a question about my puppy. Nothing is the matter.
Nothing is the matter. It's more of a general question. I got his sister about 7 weeks ago at 8 weeks old and have been taking her to get rounds of shots at the vet after she received an initial 5 way shot. She's had 2 rounds with 1 more to go that includes rabies and such. I just got this puppy (her brother) this weekend, now 15 weeks old. The owner said that he had a 5 way (same time she did) and also a "9 way?" I want them to get on the same type of schedule but have no idea what shots he needs to catch up. The only thing I know that he needs for sure is rabies and kennel cough. … read more
