Customer Question
I believe my small...

I believe my small 15lb dog got into zzzquill. She threw up and instantly was unsteady and looked disoriented. I took her right into the vet, and they looked at her for 5 mins and said it was a seizer. It has been many hours later and she still isn't back to normal.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

Unsure. There is a slight chance she got into zzquil

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

Sadie and 1

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sadie?

She was perfectly healthy and normal before she threw up. It was very instant

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Sadie, please?

The active ingredient in Zzzquil is the antihistamine diphenhydramine which is sedative but shouldn't cause vomiting, unsteadiness, and disorientation unless ingested in egregious excess. We dose this antihistamine at up to 2 mg per pound of body weight (maximum dose of 50 mg at any one time) to dogs.
