Customer Question
She has been restlessly...

She has been restlessly trotting around for about an hour, not panting but with her mouth open.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?

She has been restlessly trotting for about an hour, not panting, but with her mouth open. She won’t sit or lay down.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Birdie, about 4. Rescue, but looks like a flat coated retriever.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Birdie.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Birdie?

When rescued, she had heart worms, which were treated with the slow kill method. We had a birthday party last night and my daughter thinks she was scared of the balloons and she removed them, but she is still trotting.

We think we’ve discovered the problem. A bottle of 10 milligram (20-25) pills is empty of Vivance, an adhd medication.

What do we do now? They were probably swallowed last night and are already in her system.

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Did I understand that she potentially consumed up to 250mg of Vyvanse?

How much does she weigh?

50 pounds
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 12 days ago

Vyvanse toxicity can occur at dosages around 1mg/kg which is roughly 22mg for a dog her size. Major symptoms would be expected around 220mg which is right at the amount she's consumed. If you believe that this took place, I would arrange a vet visit immediately, even if this means that she needs to go to your local ER. We can induce vomiting within 2 hours time of the medication being consumed. If she consumed this last night, however, we can no longer prevent her body from absorbing the medication she's already digested. Your vet may wish to give activated charcoal to prevent any additional absorptions, but I suspect treatment will be supportive at this point given her symptoms. I do need to warn you that her symptoms may progressively worsen which may include seizure activity, blood pressure fluctuations, cardiac problems and potentially even death. If she were my companion, we'd go to the ER right now.

If you need help finding a clinic that can help you today, I need your location.
