Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi, i`m Richard, a Veterinarian from the UK. Hopefully I can help today.
How long ago did he eat the pill?
I`m afraid I am unable to offer a live phone call from the UK, but I am happy to continue here. if you would prefer, I can opt out and one of the other vets may be able to offer this service?
Seroquel does have the potential to be toxic. it can cause nervous system depression, low blood pressure, liver damage, and electrolyte imbalances.
I would recommend having him checked out by your vet ASAP.
If he ingested the medication in the last 15 minutes, then inducing vomiting is a good idea.
You can administer 3% hydrogen peroxide orally at a dose of 1ml per pound. (2 teaspoons per 10 pounds of body weight). After giving this orally, encourage him to walk around to mix his stomach contents.. This should usually lead to vomiting. If he doesn`t vomit after 10 minutes then it can be repeated twice more.
Even if he does vomit just now, I would still recommend having him checked over by your vet as depression of the nervous system and low blood pressure can lead to severe problems.
