Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed veterinarian. Can you confirm the spelling of the medication? Is it PRAMIPEXOLE? I need to know the concentration of the medication? And I need to know your dog's estimated weight.

It is more helpful if you are online so I can help you better. But, if pramipexole is the drug your dog ingested, then I can tell you the most common side effects and treatment recommendations. It would still be helpful to know his weight though.

GI signs including vomiting within about 30 minutes of ingestion is common even with very low ingested doses. Next, we can see neurological signs including walking like he is drunk (called ataxia), tremoring and seizures. Their blood pressure can get a little low too. The recommendation is to take Joey to your vet tonight for an anti-vomiting medication called Cerenia. We do not want him to have copious amounts of vomiting form the toxicity because this will cause him to become dehydrated. Depending on the toxic dose Joey ingested the vet may recommend overnight hospitalization for IV fluids and monitoring. I think that is unlikely going to be necessary though given the small dose ingested.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns.

He has not gotten sick and seems okay
Dog Veterinarian: Chelsea Schwarb,

Okay, thank you. His ingested dose if he ate two of the 0.25 mg tablets would be 0.036 mg/kg. We can see vomiting at doses as low as 0.01 mg/kg. The neurological signs are usually seen at doses of 0.06 mg/kg. So hopefully Joey only gets GI signs of vomiting. If he hasn't gotten sick at this point, then you have the option of continuing to monitor him at home. If he begins vomiting, then you can take him in to the vet tonight for the anti-vomiting injection (Cerenia). Please also monitor him for the neurological signs including ataxia, tremoring, and seizures. If you see any of that then obviously that warrants a trip the vet as well. I'm hopeful he ends up being just fine though!

Please let me know if that is helpful and if you have any additional questions or concerns for Joey. Toxin ingestions can happen really quick and be very scary! Again, I think he is going to end up being okay. Just make sure you monitor him tonight.

Good morning. I am checking in on Joey. Did he show any signs of toxicity such as vomiting overnight? I hope he is doing well.
