Puppy Saved By Narcan After Possibly Ingesting Fentanyl

Puppy Saved By Narcan After Possibly Ingesting Fentanyl”

An overdosed puppy was saved by an opioid reversal drug after apparently getting a jolt from nibbling on a discarded pack of cigarettes during a walk.

He took her home, where she became less and less responsive, WBZ reported.

Veterinarians think Zoey ingested Fentanyl because heroin would have likely taken longer to leave her system and would have required more Naloxone. It turned out an opioid was inside and the yellow lab soon lost consciousness.

Her owner says Zoey fell over nearly instantly, overdosing on the drug. Thibault was amazed at how quickly Zoey snapped out of the overdose.

Krista Vernaleken/Bulger veterinary hospital: "Just the combination of it being a young, otherwise healthy dog, who had suddenly collapsed right after eating something on the street - those were kind of the keys".

Thibault grabbed the container, anxious she may swallow foil in it and gotten sick.

Thibault said she had the cigarette box in her mouth for maybe 30 seconds.

The veterinarian gave Zoey several doses of naloxone over a 12 hour period. And literally within five minutes, she asked me to come back in.

Bulger's medical director, Krista Vernaleken, said the growing opioid crises in the USA could be detrimental to pets. The veterinary hospital has treated at least three other similar cases just this year.
