Hi, this is Doctor H and I'd be happy to assist you. When did this ingestion take place and what is the product in question?
a few hours ago , a spot on product from the vet 2nd dose flea tick and mange treatment
Is the name of it revolution?
advocate xlrg dog
Okay, was it a single dose or multiple doses? How much does Flick weigh?
28 kg , one treatment capsule
Okay, and how has she been acting and for how long?
last couple of hours to begin with she looked like she was serching for something we thought perhaps the cat had brought a mouse in and let it go , then she started panting cant settle and a bit wobbly wont drink
Any muscle tremors?
not that I can see
So is she acting like she's drunk?
Okay, do you have an emergency vet by you?
I've never tried but I need one do I ?
I think it would be best.
So Advocate has an ingredient called moxidectin, which is causing the signs you're seeing.
And it's best to have her on fluids to help get it out.
I'm on the phone .. thanks
BUT the good news is that most dogs totally recover within 48 hours
It would just be ideal to have her supervised...if she has any tremors then the ER vet can treat them with medication.
Collies can also be sensitive to moxidectin...did your vet do any kind of genetics test to determine if she is sensitive?
It's not a big deal if the test wasn't done, but it would be good to know.
Also Bayer likely has a toll free number for assistance, I would call them and see if they can help out with the cost.
Let me know if you have any other questions once you're off the phone.
Otherwise kindly rate my assistance so I may know how helpful I've been.
Are you still there?
yes waiting for phone call from vet
Oh, okay. Do you have any other questions?
no thanks for being there
