Baxter has been on antifungals for 2 weeks now. At the time I got them from the vet, they only had 2 weeks worth, so I picked up the rest of them yesterday. (went up $20 in price!) Put all the pills together in one bottle. Meanwhile, SU got a script for Vicoden (still haven't told that vacation story yet). It was sitting on the kitchen counter. This morning I gave Baxter his pills (all sitting together on the kitchen counter). I put them in pill pockets and he does obedience things for them. No problems. BUT - I was sitting at the kitchen table, saw a bottle of pills and looked at it - Baxters antifungals! So what was sitting with his pills on the counter? Vicoden! They are both white tablets, very similar in size. Quick call to the Vet - because of Baxters's size, they said the Vicoden wouldn't hurt him, just might make him sleepy. We dumped out the pills, sorted the Vicoden from the antifungals, and there were the proper amount of Vicoden (SU had only taken 3). So, it was either a miracle the he managed to take a only Vicoden, and I mananged to pick out one of the antifungals this morning OR I forgot to give him the anitfungal - I only really remember fixing up the antibiotics in the pill pockets - I think I'm loosing my mind! I need a vacation from my vacation!
I could see myself doing something like that! Glad he will be ok after he sleeps it off.
Waiting for the vacation story.
what a waste of a perfectly good narcotic

Has your husband taken a dog antiviral? Because that would make the story!
Glad the vicoden wouldn't cause a problem...that had to be a couple minutes of worry.
Thankfully it wasn't viagra, huh? LOL! Glad he will be okay and pain free even though he has no pain

"A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water log stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if your rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?"- John Grogan
I gave Nellie one of my blood pressure meds last year. I panicked and called the vet. Well that drug was tested on dogs so thank God she was okay.

Glad everyone was OK.
A few months ago, I took one of Bella's thyroid meds. Fortunately the dose was fairly low, so any effects were minimal (and possibly more psychosomatic than physiological).
Since then, we have taken much greater care when taking out everyone's morning pills - Bella's is always placed on a different counter than where we put ours.
Is he sleeping?
