hi there,

we have a dog that ate a chicken that was euthanized with a barbiturate. he is now in a coma. on oxygen, but breathing on his own. if anyone has any recommendations of remedies or stories you can share with me, it would be greatly appreciated.

thank you!

I once heard a story of an owl at a wildlife rehab place who was accidentally given a small mammal that had been euthanized with barbituates, and "he slept for a week". So it sounds like if it doesn't kill them outright, they just have to sleep it off. I don't know if it causes any longterm damage, so have the vet do bloodwork and other tests to make sure all his organs are still working OK.

Hope it all works out OK :(.
