Dropped 1mg of tacrolimus...

Dropped 1mg of tacrolimus on the floor; our cockatoo may have eaten it.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the cockatoo will be able to digest that. What is the cockatoo's name and age?

Cockapoo, stupid autocorrect

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Cockapoo?

Daisy is 9 years, 6 mkonths

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

30lbs; about an hour ago, and she seems fine.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Good, I am glad to hear that Daisy is a good sized dog.

As she is, this is quite a low dose and under the level we'd give a dog. So, while we could induce vomiting or use activated charcoal at this point (which I am happy to discuss), we don't strictly need to. You can choose to just take things easy and monitor for today. As well to offset any GI upset, you can consider offering a light diet option. 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. And we'd not expect any major issue for her.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.

I think that we will monitor, as long as it is considered a low dose.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Hello again,

That is completely fine as it is under the dose we'd be concerned about GI upset or immune effects.

Happy holidays,

Dr. B.
