Five-month-old Kingsley was supposed to appear in his very first dog show this weekend. But when he started acting strangely on Thursday night, his owner Matthew Palmer rushed him to the vet instead.
“Head bobbing, tremoring, agitation. Not mentally appropriate for a healthy puppy,” Dr. Leah Brass said.
Dr. Brass works at Iowa Veterinary Specialties. She wasn’t the one who examined Kingsley on Thursday night, but she tells CNN affiliate KCCI that the vet on call was able to come to a conclusion about what happened.
“He was probably exposed to amphetamine. His presenting signs were very typical for amphetamine exposure in dogs,” Dr. Brass explained.
