    Default5 hour energy drink

    Hi I feel like a newbie here but my vet said he didn't know and I cannot get a straight answer from google. Thunder may have ingested a small amount of 5 hr energy drink. I think most ended up in the rug, but he may have ingested half an ounce or so. I do not have hydrogen peroxide (on next shopping list) is there anything else I could use or do I even need to worry. He seems fine (this was about 5 min ago)

    Hi and welcome to the forum. You didn't say how old your dog is or how much he weighs. I wouldn't think a half ounce would be a problem. I would make sure he drinks water, and give him something to eat. It will help if he doesn't have an empty stomach. I doubt that he got enough for stomach upset. Caffeine is not good for dogs. Be careful even disposing of used coffee grounds. I would watch for any increased respirations or any distress. I am surprized your vet didn't have more info for you. Please post how he is doing....

    Can you call other vets in your area? Maybe the manufactuer of the drink and last resort one of the vet info on line sites? (May cost a fee but vets are online to answer general questions). I wouldn't stop until I got a definite answer just to be on the safe side. Good luck.

    He is 65 lbs 3 yrs old. That's good to know about the coffee grounds... Right now he is chewing on a bone. I am waiting for a call back from another vet. I'm not even sure where the stuff came from. I don't drink it and I can't even remember the last time my husband had one. It is very much like having a toddler around again. I'm going to have to scrub the house again.

    If it was only a half oz and he's 65 lbs, I doubt you have to worry. I would just watch him closely for a couple hours. These labbies! What they can get in to!!

    I doubt that it will hurt him. This is a good learning experience to see how Labs get into everything. Lab owners develop a mindset to put everything away from where the Lab can get it.
    (Hydrogen peroxide can be a life saver, but it is hard on the stomach and should be used only when necessary.)

    He is doing fine. We had the generic version of it. A friend of mine is a vet tech and she helped me out. He is just as goofy. It was completely a learning experience. I started looking at things from his perspective (something I thought I had done) thank you for your help and patience as I learn as I go. It's a lot like having a new baby. No matter how much you read and think you are prepared you never know until they are in your home.
