Hello, I’m Kristen and I will be your Veterinary Assistance today, and as always, it’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the condition or symptoms.
I do not have the facility to make phone calls. You will be offered a call automatically by the system and if accepted, you will be transferred to another agent and this chat will end. You can chose to decline and continue on the chat
I need to clarify the following to help me understand further.
Thats ok its only natural to worry. Did you get my questions ok?
Ok so Onisior is also a med that can be given to dogs too and the usual dose is 1-2 mg per kg so for Joey he wouldnt have had too much if he did manage to get hold of it
has there been any unsual sounds or changes in or around his home that could be causing some anxiety?
No changes to his diet or a new treat or anything like that?
has he been toileting ok recently? No changes to his poo or pee?
Yes its strange its only happening inside which makes me think that there is something he sees or hears (maybe you cant) that is making him feel anxious
Is his breathing ok and he isnt showing any sign of muscle tremors or disorientation that maybe he could have eaten something else?
His heart rate is normal?
The possible side effects of the med wouldnt even cause this behavior unless he is feeling a bit unwell which can happen with Onisior
It is possible that he is allergic to the medication which is causing this but usually this would also be accompanied by vomiting etc
Do you have benadryl in the house?
Its just something that can be given to a dog for anxiety. Its a safe med and if the anxious behavior continued, you could try giving him a dose of it to help calm him down.
what time is it where you are? Is it night time and when he would normally go asleep?
Ok so its normal then for him to be tired especially if he has had an extra walk. Try to get him to drink plenty of water as this can help flush the med out if he took it and can help reduce its effects if it is it that is causing the issue.
It does sound like he has had a bit of an anxiety attack. To what, its going to be difficult to say if there is nothing apparent
Yes try to get him to drink water periodically through the night. I am here for another 7 hours if he is still acting strange during the night or you are worried. I will keep the chat open until the morning for you and just close it off before I finish my shift if I dont hear from you
Yes it is possible that he has picked up on your mood as they are very in tune with their owners especially if you have a close relationship
Thats lovely. Hopefully now you are calming down, so will he
How is little Joey doing now?
I am going offline in 20 minutes but I do hope little Joey is doing ok.
Do keep me updated on how he is if you can. Just use this existing chat thread to send a message through.
I trust that everything has now been answered to your satisfaction. If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to get back to me on JustAnswer. In the meantime, I wish you all the best.
Oh great news he seems to be ok. Yes do keep me updated. I am online now for almost 10 hours :-)
