Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with your dog?

I read it may make his heart rate go too low

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does your dog seem to hurt?

He doesn't hurt

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. What is the dog's name?

Augie

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

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Augie swallowed a 5 mg tablet of amlodipine. I am sorry to hear about what happened. Can you please tell me about how long ago that occurred?

Thank you for that information. The good news is that Augie swallowed less than what would be a therapeutic dose. Therefore, toxicity is not likely at the amount he swallowed. Low blood pressure and low heart rate would be expected at doses higher than 15 mg (i.e. 3 tablets), but a single tablet is unlikely to have these effects. Monitor for panting and lethargy, but otherwise, this should resolve without complication. The medication will be metabolized and excreted from the body in 12 hours.
