Zyflamend appears to be very well tolerated and safe.

Arnica can potentially inhibit clotting and lead to bleeding. With that in mind, I would try to do some initial GI decontamination. I would first try to induce vomiting with 3 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide. I would then take her to a vet where they can give activated charcoal to bind what is left.

Lastly, I would check a CBC to check red cell counts and platelet counts. I would also do baseline clotting times. In 24-48 hours i would recheck those to make sure we're not going to have any spontaneous bleeding.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

is it ok if the charcoal is in the am? i live nowhere close to a all hours vet
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Gary, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 month ago

After about 4-6 hours, it's not going to help anymore. The drug has to be in the stomach or small intestine for the charcoal to bind to it and prevent absorption.

If you're going to wait, then I would just wait 24 hours and check bloodwork at that time.

alright. i really dont have much of a choice
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Gary, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 month ago

Oh I understand. You do what you can.

If clotting times are off, then a plasma transfusion can be given to help. I doubt that will be needed, but it's an option.

zyflamed
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Gary, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 month ago

Ok good. That bodes well for him not having any signs of toxicity. The Zyflamed is pretty safe.
