Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?
1) How long ago was this consumed?2) Have you witnessed any vomiting?
There are accounts of overdosages causing renal failure, so you have every reason to be concerned that this may warrant a trip to the ER.We can attempt to induce vomiting at home. However, if you don't see all four tablets in relatively undigested form I would err on the side of caution and have him seen at the ER. They will likely want to administer therapy to try to keep him from absorbing the rest of the medication.At very least, you'll need to talk to your vet on Monday about potentially running lab work to see if any harm has befallen his kidneys from this ingestion.Here are the directions on how to induce vomiting. Go with the peroxide since he has a history of kidney issues and doesn't need the salt intake. Use a fresh bottle of peroxide, one that has not been opened. http://www.sunrisepetclinicaz.com/vomiting.html
