I have an appointment for Tayda to get her venous blood gas and blood chemistry done today. I brought her to work with me because her vet closer to where I work than where I live. I pilled her before we left the house, and then about 1 hour and 15 minutes later - in the car, she threw up. Lenny was nice enough to clean up the mess before I could inspect the vomit to see if there were any intact pills in it. In the past when she vomits after a pilling - unless it is right away (~10 min or so) - I usually don't see any pills. But I know that doesn't necessarily mean they have been absorbed.
So, my question is - since the protocol states that there should be 8 hours since the last pilling before the blood draw so that the blood values are at their trough values - am I okay to still take her to the vet today? Is an hour and 15 minutes enough for the pills to have entered her system? Or will her having possibly vomited up some of her pills throw off the blood work?
I have an email out to Dr. gonto also, but thought I'd throw it out to the peanut gallery here as well!
thanks for any insight anyone might have!
