I recently adopted a...

I recently adopted a chihuahua that weighs approx 6lbs with the broncitis. she taking .05 clavamox drops twice a day along with .o5ml of temaril for cough. i just gave her this. However my other 8-9 lb chihuahua caught this. and i just tried to give her dose of temaril in tablet form of 1/2 and i think the 6lb grabbed this as well. What is this going to do to her?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Coughing can be worrying. The Expert will know what you should do. What is the Chihuahua's name and age?

Little girl approx 1-2 yrs 6 lbs

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Chihuahua's name?

Luckily one additional dose will not harm your new adoption but you may see symptoms of the ingestion of the additional dose that includes steroids such as increased panting, water intake, urination, appetite transiently for 12-24 hours

Hopefully it will not cause additional gi upset as well so please make sure that she has something in her stomach to minimize the risk

But otherwise it should pass without incident in the next 12-24 hours if there are any ill effects

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today
