my dog may or may not have ingested a topiramax
Hello there. My name isXXXXX to hear that Khalua is trying to get herself into trouble tonight. I am going to assume that the dose is 25 mg of Topamax. If this is not correct please let me know. For a dog her size this is a very low dose if she ingested it. This drug is used in a dogs at a higher dose and rarely shows negative side effects. Most common side effect in dogs is "sluggishness" so in her with this dose I would not expect to see any side effects. I hope this helps. I would not induce vomiting at this point and time since there is not a threat of toxicity.

is there anything else i should watch for. ?


I wouldn't expect you to see any changes but if you see anything she may just be a little "tired" tonight. But I really wouldn't expect to much of that.
