    I'm mad and upset for you. Fluoxtine is based on weight.
    I know 60mg for a dog that weighs 60lbs is fine, so 80 is not going to do any damage. He may just be out of it for a day.

    Whoever you spoke with at the emergency clinic needs a kick in the arse.

    @brutus77 Oh Rosalie,so sorry this happened to you. Thank goodness that all turned out well for you and Brutus. Good that you made the other phone call,and you and Bru didn't have to go to the vet,and he didn't have to have the trauma of it. You could not have known it would be okay. The first one you called either didn't know, or is money hungry! I am happy that you and Brutus are okay,and certainly don't blame yourself.(easy to say,not so easy to do....I know)

I asked if I could just induce vomiting since it was not even 5 minutes that he had the second pill. They didnt advise it and said my only other option was to call animal poison control if I didnt "want" to bring him to the ER. I called and spoke to two vets who assured me he might vomit and experience some diarrhea, since according to his weight he isnt even at a theraputic dose at 40 mg. He would have had to get alot more for it to be really dangerous. They said he may get sleepy but to make sure I can rouse him and to make sure he drinks water. I felt terrible since it was my mistake, I couldnt even look at him without losing it. When I knew he was going to be ok, I gor a little angry with the on call vet who made it sound like he was critical. I mean I will go to the ends of the earth for my boys, but I feel like they saw an opportunity to make a quick grand! I am just thanking god tonight my preciuos baby is ok.
    MY God I am so happy all is good ( late on this so sorry ) Let those AsHoles Know word of mouth can kill there business !! I am so angry right now arrgggg

    I am calling my regular vet today to complain. He was on vacation, so my initial call was to who he had as an after hours contact. He should know they are terrible.
