Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. I’d like to help with your concerns regarding Kayla.

Please help me understand your question regarding Kayla.

What time is it currently where you are?

I'm guessing the "gi b" in your first sentence a typo? Can you please clarify for me.

East coast. That was a typo.
Dog Specialist: Dr. Denise, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Ok, thank you.

My sister and her dog just evacuated from Boca Raton today as well. I'm glad you are all safe.

Are you able to count her breaths? How many breaths is she taking/minute?

Did she have a similar response with her breathing after taking 25mg on Wednesday?

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
76 beats per minute.
I think it was faster with the full dose vs 1/2 of the 25 mg dose
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
She also went to the bathroom normally.
Will she just sleep it off? Do I wake her and let her out to get some fresh air?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Same experience.
