Dog given Narcan after possible overdose on prescription opioids

LYMAN, MAINE – A three-year-old yellow Labrador retriever had to be given Narcan after her owner believes the dog “overdosed” on Oxycodone Thursday morning.

According to the York County Sheriff’s Office, the pup, named Addie, got into her owner’s legally prescribed medication. Addie’s owner told police her dog seemed a bit drowsy and asked the officer to administer the anti-opioid, Narcan. After she received the shot, Addie seemed to perk up a bit.
