Sad to say, I had a vet mess up on the procedure, and they put the medicine in his lungs
There are medications that can be put into the lungs....I am a paramedic and also was a vet assistant.
These are usually pushed via the ET(breathing) tube and done when IV is not established.
Drugs that can be given
N-narcan (opiate reveral) A-Atropine (cardiac drug used for bradycardia ei Slow heart) E-Epinephrine (cardiac drug, also given for anaphylaxis) V-Valium for seizures L-Lidocaine for heart arrythmias.....
They will not *Flood* the lungs, and they are even followed by a 20cc bolus of Normal saline to push the drug into the lungs....
However, if they WERE pushing those drugs, the dog had to have either been....
Overdosed (narcan), was seizing, OR had heart problems.
FYI Kongs do not have a lifetime guarantee! Bogle lover do you just make stuff up as you type? This is from the Kong website:
SATISFACTION GUARANTEED! Your dog will love our products, or we will buy them back. Simply return the toy along with the sales receipt within 30 days of purchase for a full refund. Thank you for purchasing a Kong product! MAKE SURE YOUR RUBBER TOYS COME FROM KONG COMPANY USA. http://www.kongcompany.com/userGuides/KONGUserGuide.html
Thanks for passing on the information so we can avoid the same problem. I personally stopped using them when Georgie threw up a hunk of Nylabone. That was enough for me. I was fortunate enough that she threw it up instead of having it get lodged in the intestines.
Thanks for the info, do you think KONGS have the same issue. I would like to add that it does say on the package to not leave your dog alone with the toy (which makes no sense that you would buy a toy that you have to supervise you DOG 24/7.
