Customer Question
Our 64 lb dog...

Our 64 lb dog got into a guest's prescription medications as follows:

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

Nothing yet. We're still counting/accounting for the missing pills. I should have probably waited until we had all the facts. This happened within the last hour 1/2.

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

Our 60 pound

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

Our 60 pound fox hound got into prescription medicine. The following pills appear to be missing -

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is the dog eating normally?

7 Hydroclorothiazider 25 mg., 7 Estradiol 1 mg., 4 Montelkast SOD 10 mg., 2 Tropisium Chloride ER - 60 mg, 4 Omeprazole 20 mg.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is the dog having trouble peeing or pooing?

It is too soon to tell. dog is outside now.

Veterinarian's Assistant: How is the dog behaving differently?

No. she go into the pills sometime within the last two hours.

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

Lilly

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

She has no other medical issues. She is a very healthy 6 year old dog who weighs 60 pounds.
