My Pomeranian is not acting well. More sedate than usual.

Customer Question
My Pomeranian is not...

My Pomeranian is not acting well. More sedate than usual. Yesterday I had found one of my Imitrex bottles on the couch minus the lid and still had Imitrex in it. The loose pills are 100mg tabs cut into fourths. Jus wondering if that might be the issue?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Is your dog bleeding a lot?

No

Veterinarian's Assistant: Phew. What is the dog's name and age?

Bobby , 8, I think?

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Bobby?

8-10years , sorry.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bobby?

Was previously heartworm positive, been clear for several years.

It will take me a moment to check my drug formulary, do you know about how much Bobby weighs?

Dog Specialist: Dr. Beth, Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

There is not a whole lot of info for Imitrex in dogs, but ultimately any effects generally only last 12 hours, so if it has been longer than that where he might have had some, it shouldn't be the medication.

Any breathing changes?

How is his appetite?

Thank you for all of your help. He bounced back and would act better then act poorly. My daughter noticed something wrong with his eye last night. Took him to the vet today and has an ulceration to his eye. Received meds for the eye and hopefully will make a full recovery. Vet suspects a vine along the fence line he shimmy’s through to go visit my moms house.

Wonderful, thank you for the update - hope for his sake and yours Bobby stays out of trouble, too much excitement for one week I think!
