Hi, this is Dr Hill. Is she showing any abnormal symptoms so far?

She is alternating between being quiet & very loud vocalizing
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Leah Hill, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Symptoms seen in animals typically reflect disorientation, hyperexcitability (although depression may be seen), tachycardia-high heart rate, and compulsive behavior. Management is aimed at decontamination and supportive care (e.g., fluid therapy if too sedated to eat or drink). No specific antidote is available. I would recommend taking her into the emergency clinic to see if they can decontaminate her and give her fluids to help get her through the side effects of the toxicity.
