So Dude got TWO - count them TWO!!! doses of Cash's alprazolam tonight.

 

I fix her morning dose and take it upstairs so I can give it to her about an hour before we actually get up for breakfast - she eats better and is happier when the drugs have taken effect! So I fixed her morning dose in the pill pocket and put it on top of our tiki bar where I've been putting it for weeks now, go into the bathroom for 2 seconds, come out and it's gone. Coulda been Dude, coulda been Toni, they were both standing right there.

 

Sooooooooo, fixed another one, and STOOPIDLY put it back on top of the bar, turn away and turn back to see Dude doing his African-antelope-eating-a-tree-branch pose getting the dose off the BACK of the bar.

 

Dude's now had 3mg of xanax. Guess I'm gonna wake up every little while to see if he's OK. Jerk! I'm not overly worried, just feeling like a stupid Momma!

I have done things like that before, too. Today, Dude is a VERY COOL DUDE! :-) A good friend had one of her greys get into the Ultra Calm, a natural calming agent for dogs. She was fine, but "ultra calm!"

Oh gosh, Chris, do I understand! I remember how horrified I was when I dropped Piper's Phenobarbital and Soloxine and the ball of dog food containing them was grabbed and gobbled up by little 25 lb Winston. :eek Didn't seem to phase him at all and the e-vet (phone call) didn't seem too worried. How's 00 Dude doing today?

Oh God it happens to all of us!!! Last week I turned around to give Jack his Soloxin and like the absentminded professor just opened Betty's mouth and give it to HER instead!!! Stood there like a fool for several seconds looking at her like "ok how do I get THAT back?" well of course I didn't and it didn't effect her at all, just makes you feels "challenged"

Poor little Dude!

 

He's basically fine, but veeerrrryyyyy sleepy! And he fell off the bed twice last night! He got lots of sleep and I didn't!

 

Thanks everyone!

:lol I laughed, and laughed when I read this, because I have done the exact same thing, prepared meds for one dog and gave it to another, I SHOULD know better I'm a NURSE for god's sake.

I am so glad you boy is O.K., not laughing at poor Dude
