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

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Sophie ingested 20 mg/25 kg = 0.8 mg/kg. At 0.33 mg/kg, ataxia ("drunken sailor") and lethargy can arise within 12-24 hour post-ingestion. It takes 4.4 mg/kg to cause tremors and vocalization. There's no reason for a vet visit unless Sophie is exhibiting more than ataxia and lethargy at this time. May I have an update on Sophie, please?

Thank you. She has been sleepy but otherwise ok.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Good to hear. She'll do nicely with no lasting damage. Thank you for taking the time to let me know. I can't set a follow-up in this venue so please return to our conversation - even after rating - with an update at your convenience. You can bookmark this page for ease of return.
