I just made a massive mistake and my vet closed 51 minutes ago. She changed the Baytril dosage form from liquid to a tablet that I crush and mix with 1mL water. I did this and gave it to Maggie just a few minutes ago. About 30 seconds after I finished wrangling the syringe in her mouth and fighting the 1ml down her....I realized that the dose was supposed to be divided into two! I just gave her a whole 22.5mg tablet mixed with water. She’s only 1065 grams. Is there anything I can do? I forced 5 cc’s of water down her to help flush it down a little, but after the fight with critical care than the antibiotic tonight, that’s all she would take. I’m at a complete loss of what to do.

Are there any other foods that are particularly good for, or need to be avoided in this situation? She usually gets a good handful of spring mix, but I’m not sure if it will help keep her tummy moving or hurt and just increase the loose stool outcome odds.

So Maggie’s top tooth finally grew back in, is white again, teeth are ~mostly~ even. I check on her teeth almost every other night, if not every night, just to be careful. Tonight I noticed her right tooth angling inward, which it hadn’t been day before yesterday. Upon closer inspection, her bottom tooth has a vertical crack/fracture running from the gum line to halfway up the tooth! The tooth is loose, in the sense that when I was trying to look at it, my finger barely bumped it and it pushed slightly more inward. I immediately put her down and left it alone. Other than the long crack, it is white and normal-looking. She’s still eating, although when I gave her her hard Oxbow Vit C tablet, she was clearly favoring her left side, as if trying to avoid eating with that tooth. Last time, I barely touched that top tooth and it came out, so I’m afraid to mess with this tooth, but I am also concerned that it will come out on its own, and since it’s angling inward, she could swallow it or choke on it while I’m at work today. All vets are closed here unless emergency due to COVID-19, and the vet said she won’t see her unless she stops eating. Any suggestions?
