Ben ate my perscription.

Postby fattie » Sun Dec 02, 2007 8:26 am

well my moms dogs ben ( a great dane/gsd/lab mix ) somehow got my bottle of medicine( adderal ) and chomped the bottle and ate about 10 of them. so i rushed him to the vet , they gave him some more drugs and kept him for the day. when i picked him up , he was so drugged up he couldnt even walk.

i felt pretty bad , and it cost me 130 bucks. hes all better now, but it was kinda scary cuz he was drooling and whining the whole way in the car. i know a grown adult would be flying off 10 of them i couldnt imagine how he felt. i guess i need to keep my meds out of reach of the dogs , i dont want this to happen again. have any of you had this expirence with your dogs and perscription meds ?

It's never happened here, as we keep the meds where the dogs can't get them. Good job getting him to the vet right away, though. Poor guy.

I'm glad he's okay. Yes, I always keep medication in a cabinet away from the dog's reach.

That's scary, I'm glad he's ok!

It's never happened to me, but sometimes I wish the dogs would get into the Xanax.

Our meds are in the kitchen on the counter and the dogs never find it.
However, my 15y. old boy, who has a disability, sometimes drops his anti-seizure drug and it scares me to death, but I've found the ones he's dropped.

We were at a party once and someone dropped a xanax and their pup ate it but nobody knew it at the time till the person that had dropped it realized they were missing one and the pup was stumbling around and could barely walk it lived but it was very scary I was only 16 with no DL so i couldn't take it to the vet so I set with it all night and kept it awake and moving

When people call my work and there dog eats something that they are not suppose to I just tell them to give your dog a teaspoon of Peroxide and if doesn't vomit in the next 5 minutes than give it another teaspoon. I only tell clients to do these only if they are not close by otherwise I would tell them to come by. Hope this helped you all out
