... good health. I really can't afford the vet unless emergency. Has this happened to anyone else? What should I be watching for? Can anyone help? It costs $60 to call poison control
Hi, PuppyLover! Lisinopril 5mg is a very small dose and we generally dose dogs at higher doses than the human dose of many medications, plus it may have been less than 5mg, right?
I'm inclined to say that this is probably a situation that can be monitored closely at home.
If she ingested the pill less than half an hour ago you can try to induce vomitting by giving a teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide, but I honestly don't think she's going to have a problem.
Watch for any extreme weakness or deep sleep in which case head for the ER, but otherwise just give it time.
I be watching the boards all evening so please feel free to post any questions and an update.
Best wishes, WildcatVet
